Lawyers Feeding Illinois hits half a million meals
Half way through its two-week campaign from Feb. 18-March 1 to raise one million meals, the Lawyers Feeding Illinois campaign has reached a significant milestone, having raised more than 500,000 meals, according to ISBA President John E. Thies. The campaign, conducted in cooperation with Feeding Illinois, is chaired by Thies’s wife Terry.
More than 90 lawyer teams throughout the state have registered to participate, including 28 local, ethnic and specialty bars. In addition, state judges have set up collection boxes in some 20 courthouses to collect non-perishable food items. Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund, an event sponsor, is also collecting food at several of its lawyer-members’ offices statewide.
