Wallace Pierce Law Provides 375 Meals to Durham, NC Students

There are more than 41 million people in the United States who are struggling with food insecurity. It’s a scary statistic to begin with, but what makes it even worse is that almost 13 million of those people are children. Knowing that so many are in need, especially those who are so young, Wallace Pierce Law in Durham, NC decided to team up with other local law firms to hold a food drive.

From November 1-20, Wallace Pierce Law’s goal was to fill as many boxes with food donations as possible. Employees, guests and clients were encouraged to bring in non-perishable items, such as canned fruits and veggies, peanut butter and jelly, cereal, and more. By the end of the drive, they had collected 450 pounds of food, which is enough to provide 375 meals! What an awesome job for a first food drive!

Covenant Moving Company kindly volunteered to pick up and deliver the boxes of food to a nearby food bank. When the Covenant team arrived however, the food bank was no longer there, and a charter school stood in it’s place. It almost seemed like the food no longer had a destination, that was until they stepped into the building. Reaching All Minds Academy had a pantry for it’s students, and it turns out that they were in desperate need of food. The timing was perfect, and the school could not be anymore grateful for the donations.

There are more than 1.5 million people in North Carolina who are food insecure, including 1 in 5 children. The food donated will help feed the less fortunate students of RAM Academy. Thanks so much to Wallace Pierce Law for taking the time to make a difference in your community, and thank you to all the law firms who joined you:
