To the Editor:
On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate the University of Georgia School of Law for earning the top award among the state’s law schools in the ninth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy competition.
We also congratulate Blasingame Burch Garrard Ashley, P.C., which received the regional award for organizations supporting the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, and Silver & Archibald LLP, which took runner-up honors. The collective efforts of these Athens area attorneys and their staffs, along with UGA Law contributed to the record-breaking total of 3.3 million meals provided by the legal community across the state. A total of 222 legal organizations, representing more than 17,000 members, participated in this year’s Legal Food Frenzy.
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 its regional food banks. We have now raised the equivalent of 12.2 million meals in eight 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.
Will Davis, 2019-20 President
Young Lawyers Division
State Bar of Georgia
