A company that is doing business in the community should also SERVE the community. Hull Barrett realizes a mere monetary donation from the firm is not enough to make a real dent in the hunger stats that face the CSRA and surrounding areas.
Hull Barrett, Ivey Residential, and The Augusta Chronicle are looking to spend more time and effort to bring awareness to the food insecurity and hunger statistics, and more, to do something about it.
3 companies, working together, have a real shot at making a difference. We have set an ambitious goal of 55,000 lbs of food and funds, a goal that cannot be met without the help of the public’s generosity.
So, What is Legal Food Frenzy?
The Office of the Attorney General, the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia, and the Georgia Food Bank Association have joined forces to create a friendly food and fund drive to benefit food banks in Georgia from April 18 – April 29, 2016.
