2013 Barristers Executive Committee
The Hunger & Poverty Relief Committee works tirelessly on a multitude of year-round projects including the "Firms for Food" program with Second Harvest Food, delivering Meals-on-Wheels on Mondays and Fridays at lunch, and serving as interviewers in the Knox Area Rescue Ministries job skills training program. The Committee also organizes several special "drives" each year, including participation in the Coats for the Cold campaign, Professional Clothing Drives to benefit the Career Closet, Cell Phone Drive for victims of abuse, School Supplies Drive to benefit ChildHelp USA. The Committee also organizes an annual Canned Food Drive Competition and sponsors an Angel Tree each Holiday Season to benefit local homeless shelters. Last year, the Committee also organized its first Cornhole Tournament, which raised money to benefit the Wesley House Community Center.
Hunger & Poverty Relief Committee Activities
The Knoxville Barristers have again partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee for our Fourth Annual Canned Food Drive Competition. Firms and attorneys may compete in three separate competitions:
Items of special need:
Peanut Butter, Cereal, Meat/Fish & Vegetables/Fruit
Total Items Competition - This competition is for the firm or attorney who can collect the most pounds of food. Money donations are counted at a $1:5 lb. ratio.
Peanut Butter / Bonus Competition - This competition awards points for firms and attorneys who collect the most containers of peanut butter.
Pounds/Attorney Competition - Solo practitioner? Small firm? No problem! This competition measures the amount of canned food items collected per attorney.
