Gentry Locke’s Generosity Makes Meaningful Difference to 7th Annual Food Drive
The 7th Annual Legal Food Frenzy competition, which challenges law firms, law schools, and government offices to donate food and raise money to stock Virginia’s food banks, resulted in almost 1.5 million pounds of food. The statewide, two-week drive in April of 2013 was a great success.
In Southwest Virginia, 47,000 pounds of food was raised, through donations of nonperishable goods and monetary donations. Together, the donations of Gentry Locke attorneys and staff added up to more than one third of all donations for our region – leading all other area participants.
The 2013 food drive was spearheaded at the firm by attorneys Cate Huff, Abigail Murchison, and Spencer Wiegard. The competition is a collaboration between the Office of the Attorney General, the Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks.
