Maui Attorneys Collect Food for Hunger Relief
By Wendy Osher
The Collection Law Section of the Hawaiʻi State Bar Association wrapped up a canned goods and monetary donation drive for the Hawaiʻi and Maui Food Banks.
The donations were collected in conjunction with the group’s annual meeting on December 6, as part of its Collection Attorneys for Food drive.
Event organizers say the drive was intended to provide hunger relief for anyone who might be in need.
“More than ever before, working poor families, seniors on fixed incomes, and single parents are relying on the Hawaiʻi and Maui Food Banks just to survive month to month,” said CLS President Steven Guttman.
“This is a small way that the we attorneys are able to help make sure that no one in our island ‘ohana goes to bed hungry,” said Guttman.
In addition to canned goods and monetary donations to the Hawaiʻi and Maui Food Banks, the group also donated food from the annual meeting to the Institute for Human Services for the second consecutive year.
