SJCBA collects business clothes for Goodwill

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

After a month of collecting used business wear, the New Lawyer Committee of the St. Joseph County Bar Association has more than 1,000 suits, shirts, shoes and other items to donate to Goodwill.

The bar association teamed up with Goodwill Industries of Michiana Inc. to put on the used suit drive, promoting the event with the slogan “Help balance the scale … put your suits on Goodwill’s Bar.” Collection boxes were distributed to the courthouses and law firms on April 3. The drive ended May 3.

Amy McGuire, executive director of the SJCBA, said she was impressed by the quality of donations received and the suit drive could become an annual event.

 “Giving back to the community is important,” said Leone Halpin Law Office attorney Tony Rose, who chairs the New Lawyer Committee. “Our new lawyers appreciate the opportunity to coordinate a benefit to our community. The more senior attorneys did a great job going through their closets and providing us with plenty of donations.”

The Goodwill truck picked up the items from the Leone Halpin Law Office in South Bend Wednesday

  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.
