AG's office, state bar partner for statewide food drive

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Attorney General Greg Zoeller, the Indiana State Bar Association and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry have announced details of the fourth annual March Against Hunger food drive.

In March Against Hunger, law firms compete to raise the most donations – either of non-perishable foods or direct monetary contributions – for Indiana’s 11 regional food banks. To meet increased need, the food drive will last the entire month of March rather than two weeks, as it has in years past.  

"Food banks across the state have been struggling to keep up with the needs of the hungry that have increased due to the long recession," Zoeller said. "For the fourth year, I am calling upon the members of my profession to step up and do what attorneys do best – serve the interests of others.”
 
In 2011, 50 law firms in Indiana and Kentucky participated in the March Against Hunger and donated more than 6,000 pounds of food and $27,574 – which combined is the equivalent of 143,986 pounds (or 72 tons) of assistance.

The Attorney General’s Cup will be awarded to the four firms that raise the most donations in their competitive category – large firm, medium firm, small firm/solo practitioner and public/nonprofit.

Law firms from the states immediately surrounding Indiana may participate in food drive, and firms may sign up to participate online.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
