DRI Young Lawyers Committee continues its tradition of community service by spending an afternoon with Feeding South Florida. Founded in 1981 as the Daily Bread Food Bank, Feeding South Florida has been working to reduce hunger by reducing waste. Its mission is to feed South Florida's hungry in order to improve their lives. The result? Feeding South Florida distributes approximately 2 million pounds of food each month to hungry South Floridians, including children and the elderly, the unemployed and the working poor, the disabled, the homeless, and victims of natural disasters, illness and violence.
To help support Feeding South Florida’s mission, our team of DRI Young Lawyers Committee volunteers will be sorting.....What is sorting? Sorting donations gives you a "behind-the-scenes" look at how donations from the community get to hungry South Floridians. Volunteers inspect, clean, sort, box and make donations ready for distribution to Partner Agencies and their clients. All volunteering takes place at 2501 SW 32 Terrace, Pembroke Park, Fl 33023 - 20 minutes away from our hotel. Participation is open to all seminar attendees and their families (age limits may apply).
When you register for the Young Lawyers Seminar, please be sure to check the box on the registration form for the Community Service Project. Registration is free, and transportation, refreshments and a t-shirt will be provided to all volunteers.
Please join us in this fantastic opportunity to give back to the South Florida community while developing and strengthening relationships with your fellow young lawyers.
