To the editor,
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to offer congratulations and appreciation to the judges and staff of the Office of Superior Court Judge of Columbia County, who raised the most food per capita among legal organizations during the third annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy.
Spearheaded by Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens and the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar, this year’s statewide food drive raised the equivalent of more than 1.1 million pounds of food for Georgia’s seven regional food banks to distribute to needy families in our state during the summer months. Surpassing the million-pound milestone is a significant achievement for a program that is in only its third year of existence.
With participation by 277 law firms and legal organizations, representing 16,000 employees in 45 cities, the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy is a great demonstration of what our profession can accomplish when we work together to meet our collective duty to serve others.
Patrise M. Perkins-Hooker
President, State Bar of Georgia
