The Sellers Law Firm LLC Collecting Food April 22 - May 3

The Sellers Law Firm, LLC, is proud to once again join the cause to help raise food, donations, and awareness concerning hunger in Georgia. In addition to promoting our partners at Operation Lunchbox (#kidsgottaeat), we love participating in the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy with the Georgia Food Bank Association every year.

Here's the deal: 1 in 5 kids in Georgia live in food insecure households, meaning they don't always know where their next meal is coming from. With every $1 you raise, the food banks can distribute $8 worth of groceries into the community. Engage your supervisors, colleagues, clients, friends, and family for the greatest impact! Georgia's lawyers have raised over $1.5 million for the food banks, the equivalent of over 6 million meals since the start of the Legal Food Frenzy. (www.galegalfoodfrenzy.org).

STARTING April 22, 2019, and running through May 3, 2019, drop off your food donations at the Sellers Law Firm, LLC, at 110 South Hill Street, Suite 502, Griffin, Georgia 30223 (770-415-9848). It's time to stop hunger! #GaLFF19 #whereclientsbecomefamily
