To the Editor:
On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate the faculty and staff of Mercer University Walter F. George School of Law for their outstanding success as the winner of the Attorney General's Cup in the Law School Division of the sixth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy competition.
Mercer Law collected 37.25 pounds of food per person, the most among Georgia's law schools participating in this year's Legal Food Frenzy, which took place April 17-28. Their efforts contributed to the record-breaking total of 1.34 million pounds raised by 215 legal organizations across the state.
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 everyone in the legal community 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.
Jennifer C. Mock
President, Young Lawyers Division
State Bar of Georgia
