To the Editor:
On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate the attorneys and staffs of Cook & Connelly in Summerville, total points winner, and The Minor Firm LLC in Dalton, per capita winner, for the Chattanooga Area Food Bank region in the recently completed eighth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy.
The food and money raised by these firms on behalf of the Chattanooga Area Food Bank contributed to the record-breaking total of 1.7 million meals raised by the legal community across the state. A total of 193 legal organizations, representing more than 13,000 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 8.9 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.
Rizza P. O’Connor
President, Young Lawyers Division
