If you’re looking forward to your flight to South Florida as much as I am (and attending DRI's Young Lawyers seminar), you’ve probably already got your stack of magazines ready.  In flipping through US Weekly, I noticed the Snickers ad campaign “Help Us Bar Hunger.”  Snickers is donating the cash equivalent of 2.5 Million meals and an additional cash donation in an amount equal to 2 meals will be made for each 8 digit or 12 digit Bar Code Number entered on www.snickers.com until June 27th.  There is a ten bar maximum per day, so don’t get too carried away.    

Snickers is not alone in our quest to fight hunger:  Baskin Robbins will provide one meal for every sale of their Iced Cappy Blast or new “like” on their Facebook page; and Harry’s Seafood Bar and Grille will donate $1 from every Po’Boy to the Florida Association of Food Banks.

The DRI Young Lawyers Committee will continue our tradition of community service by spending an afternoon with Feeding South Florida on June 13th at 12:30 p.m. Attendees will inspect, clean, sort and get donations ready for distribution to partner agencies and their clients.  Participation is open to all seminar attendees and their families (age limits may apply). Transportation will be provided. Please join us in this opportunity to give back to the South Florida community while developing and strengthening relationships with your fellow young lawyers.  

Looking forward to seeing you on June 13th!

Note:  Neither Snickers nor Baskin Robbins are sponsors of this blog or DRI.

DRI Young Lawyers Committee continues its tradition of community service by spending an afternoon with Feeding South Florida.  Founded in 1981 as the Daily Bread Food Bank, Feeding South Florida has been working to reduce hunger by reducing waste.  Its mission is to feed South Florida's hungry in order to improve their lives.  The result? Feeding South Florida distributes approximately two million pounds of food each month to hungry South Floridians, including children and the elderly, the unemployed and the working poor, the disabled, the homeless, and victims of natural disasters, illness and violence.  

To help support Feeding South Florida’s mission, our team of DRI Young Lawyers Committee volunteers will be sorting.....What is sorting? Sorting donations gives you a "behind-the-scenes" look at how donations from the community get to hungry South Floridians.  Volunteers inspect, clean, sort, box and make donations ready for distribution to Partner Agencies and their clients. All volunteering takes place at 2501 SW 32 Terrace, Pembroke Park, Fl 33023 - 20 minutes away from our hotel. Participation is open to all seminar attendees and their families (age limits may apply).  

When you register for the Young Lawyers Seminar, please be sure to check the box on the registration form for the Community Service Project.  Registration is free, and transportation, refreshments and a t-shirt will be provided to all volunteers.  

Please join us in this fantastic opportunity to give back to the South Florida community while developing and strengthening relationships with your fellow young lawyers.
