It is imperative that we give back to our community, especially in these hard economic times we are facing.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
The Atlanta Accident and Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates are taking part in the Legal Food Frenzy. The event is a statewide food and fund drive competition among Georgia law firms that will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
The Atlanta personal injury attorneys at Monge & Associates will start the food drive at their office at 8205 Dunwoody Place, Building 19, on April 23. The drive continues through May 4.
The firm will be collecting nonperishable food items and competing with other Georgia law firms and legal organizations to collect the most food for the nonprofit food bank.
Right now in Georgia, there are more than 1.6 million people who need food assistance, according to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
“It is imperative that we give back to our community, especially in these hard economic times we are facing,” said Scott Monge, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer whose firm represents Atlanta accident victims and those in need of disability benefits.
“The lawyers and team members at Monge & Associates have their game faces on,” he said. “We’re ready for the challenge to collect as much food as possible.”
Each month, more than 1,000 volunteers work the Atlanta Community Food Bank, which was founded in 1979. The food bank distributes almost 2 million pounds of food and other donated grocery items every month to more than 800 nonprofit agencies in the Metro Atlanta and North Georgia counties.
Last year alone, the Atlanta Community Food Bank distributed 34 million pounds of food and products. The food items go to food pantries, community kitchens, childcare centers, night shelters and senior centers in the Atlanta area.
The Atlanta Community Food Bank is committed to “fighting hunger by engaging, educating and empowering our community.”
The Atlanta Accident and Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates are proud to contribute to such a phenomenal organization, and the firm is excited to continue its relationship with them, Monge said.
