Partnership Raised 54,837.5 lbs of Food for Legal Food Frenzy


Hull Barrett, First Citizens Bank and Ivey Residential set a goal of raising 45,000 pounds for Legal Food Frenzy.

The grand total of collected food and funds equaled 54,837.5 pounds for the joint initiative, a 75% increase over 2014 and an amount that even surprised the partnership!

The food and funds will remain local for the benefit of Golden Harvest Food Bank.  The donation provides a much needed supply of food to help the families of those kids during summer months when schools are closed.  Hull Barrett, First Citizens Bank and Ivey Residential are excited that the contribution will help increase the food stores in the distribution center.  Golden Harvest Food Bank set a regional goal of 160,000 pounds from all the legal organizations in the area; the partnership is glad to provide 1/3 of that goal.

Hull Barrett, First Citizens Bank and Ivey Residential kindly thank all of the donors that made this campaign a success.  The companies witnessed extreme generosity within the 2 week campaign.  In kind donations include Firehouse Subs for donating coupons to be used during First Citizens’ “Food Friday” event and Cabela’s for donating a gift card to be utilized as a prize for collections.
