2014 Law Firm Challenge: A call to Action
Every year, the Operation Feed Campaign recruits local organizations to fight hunger through organizational food drives that benefit Mid-Ohio Foodbank. For every dollar raised, Mid-Ohio Foodbank is able to provide a remarkable 4 meals to those in need. In 2013, a total a total of fifteen Columbus law firms conducted food drives, which raised an impressive 135,548 meals through food and fund donations. While all of these food drives were remarkable for their generosity and creativity, we can do better.
In order to increase the number of meals raised by Central Ohio law firms in 2014, the Columbus Bar Association and Mid-Ohio Foodbank have joined forces to launch the 4th Annual Operation Feed Law Firm Challenge.” History shows that competition among colleagues is among the most successful and fun elements in food drive campaigns. The idea is to build upon that success by broadening the scope of the competition to industry peers.
The Columbus Bar Association and Mid-Ohio Foodbank are calling upon Central Ohio law firms of all sizes to participate in the inaugural Operation Feed Law Firm Challenge. Through this fun and spirited competition, our goal is to raise 200,000 meals in 2014.
