To the Editor:
On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate Decatur attorney Justin Oliverio for his law firm's outstanding success as the winner of the Sole Proprietor division in the sixth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy competition.
The Oliverio firm collected 12,733 pounds of food for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. A total of 215 legal organizations, representing more than 14,000 members, participated in this year's Legal Food Frenzy, which took place April 17-28 and brought in a record-breaking total of 1.34 million pounds statewide.
Along with Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, the Georgia YLD is honored to co-sponsor this project to assist the Georgia Food Bank Association and the Food Banks across the state. We have now raised a total of 6.34 million pounds of food in six years.
Thanks again to each attorney and legal professional who joined us for this important cause. We are proud to help lead an effort that has such a significant impact on communities across Georgia.
