The New Jersey State Bar Association’s Lawyers Feeding New Jersey campaign raised enough money to provide enough food for more than 26,820 meals for residents without enough to eat.
Lawyers Feeding New Jersey was a virtual effort to fight hunger that ended Dec. 31.
Over two dozen lawyers donated to the effort, raising $5,364 in contributions. All donations benefited Community FoodBank of New Jersey, which works with food banks and affiliates across New Jersey. This was the third Lawyers Feeding New Jersey campaign the association has orchestrated, raising over $94,000 since the first campaign launched in 2014.
“On behalf of the New Jersey State Bar Association, I extend my gratitude to the many people who contributed to our latest Lawyers Feeding New Jersey campaign. Together, we have made a meaningful contribution to offer our help to the 1.1 million people in New Jersey who do not have enough to eat. Serving our communities is such an important part of what it means to be an attorney,” said NJSBA President Thomas H. Prol.
