Best Class Fall Food Drive FINAL TALLY

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 who came together to donate 9,693 lbs and $ to Harvest Hope. They just beat out the Class of 2022 who collected a very respectable 7,209.25!  The Class of 2020 pull up the rear with just 897, giving the Law School a total of 17, 799.25.  Many families will have an abundant table this Thanksgiving because of your generosity. Thanks all.

And a special shout out to the small but very strong team who loaded the truck!

Thanks….

…to everyone who donated tuna and peanut butter for the Fall Best Class Food Drive. The Class of 2020 is to be congratulated for bringing in the most “poundage”.  “Poundage” in the law school is calculated as actual weight plus 1lb. for every dollar!  With a total of 4, 808 “pounds” we made a great difference and helped Harvest Hope Food Bank address food insecurity in SC.

It may be difficult to believe but all this peanut butter will be distributed within a week! The demand is high!

A special thanks to Patty Morr, Maura Ashton, and the other members of the Pro Bono Board who helped collect money, as well as weigh and load the food. We really hope that Professor Stoughton’s classes are enjoying no cold calling!  Peanut butter works!

Tuna, Tuna, Tuna and a bit of peanut butter!

Does not sound like a great recipe but a perfect grocery list for Harvest Hope Food Bank.

With just one more day left in the Fall Best Class Food Drive, you still have time to feed those in need by bringing your donation to Room 134.

Our donations will help fill Disaster Relief boxes and supply backpacks with a weekend of  food for middle school students!

 

and don’t forget to enter your name in the Daily Drawing.  Shawn Hunter entered and won two tickets to the Faculty ( we need to change that name to Public Interest) Auction! He is already planning on enjoying the event and helping out in other ways.  Will you be the next winner? Two free tickets to the Barrister’s Ball could be yours.  The final drawing will be on Friday and features lunch with Dean Wilcox, you choose the place; he pays!

A big thanks for Professor Stoughton’s class. They just could not face tuna but were excited about their donation of 1,350 lbs. of peanut butter!

Did you hear?  We made $378 from sales of cups of soup at “Hunger is NOT a CrockPot”?  The 19 soups were delicious, varied and heart-warming.

Calling all Crockpot Chefs

Do you love to cook?  How do you feel about the comfort of soup?  Willing to share your cooking talents with your classmates?  Willing to share for a good cause?

YES, then you are just the kind of chef we need to enter a crockpot of soup into the Annual Hunger is NOT a (Crock) Pot competition/fundraiser.
