The Thanksgiving Turkey and all the trimmings have been granted a stay until 5pm on Thursday, November 20th in order for the entire Law School community to come to their rescue. To lift the stay we simply need to raise 1 ton of canned food (or $2,000) for Harvest Hope Food Bank! Yes the “Best Class Food Drive” has been extended to help meet the need!
This year Harvest Hope faces a huge problem, more people are in need of food and the shelves of donated items are emptying faster and faster.
Most people only go to the Food Bank 3-4 times a year but knowing it is there to help is what is important. “My wife and I were a little ashamed, I’ll be honest. How do you ask someone for help with getting food? But they really understood our emergency and I felt like they cared for us.” – 27-year-old husband and father
We can’t solve the entire problem of hunger insecurity in SC but we can do our best and make a difference for many families. No one wants the holiday season to be just a bowl a beans- everyone deserves turkey and all the trimmings!
All donations must be brought to the Pro Bono Program office by the deadline or the turkey is headed to the fryer!
