Lavelle Law to Host Virtual Food Drive Fundraiser
Lavelle Law announced that it will once again host its annual Food Drive, but this year will be entirely virtual. The Schaumburg-based law firm has been hosting food drives in the suburbs for more than a decade and the COVID-19 pandemic won't keep the firm and its attorneys from raising funds and collecting food for those in need.
Participants can shop or make cash donations online through the Lavelle Law Charities fundraising page on the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) website. The GCFD supplies food to more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry, which serves more than 800 families a month. Every dollar donated helps provide three meals to those in need and Lavelle Law will match all donations up to $10,000.
"Serving our surrounding communities has long been a core component of our mission at Lavelle Law," said Founder Kerry Lavelle. "After seeing so many of our attorneys and community members participate in our yearly efforts, we formed our nonprofit, Lavelle Law Charities. Historically, we have been able to donate 99 percent of the funds we raise directly to charitable causes thanks to the generosity of our neighbors and dedication of our team."
This year's food drive will kick off on Oct. 26 and run through Nov. 20. Learn more about the Food Drive at www.lavellelaw.com/lavelle-law-charities-virtual-food-drive-2020 and shop or donate at www.myfooddrive.org/drive.php?3053347964.
