Food Drive 2011

CBA Litigation Section Signs on as the Statewide Sponsor of Bar Association Food Drive

Co-Sponsored by the CBA Litigation Section and the DBA Community Action Network

For the fourth year in a row the CBA Litigation section signs on as the statewide sponsor.  They are encouraging out-state law firms to make online contributions or to support their local food banks.  The council made a $5,000 contribution to the statewide food bank to kick off the drive.

Over the last several years, this two-week drive has provided close to 100,000 meals and more than $37,000 for the Food Bank of the Rockies.
