Last year I reported on the 2006 Daily Bread Food Bank Law Firm Challenge, and a lot of people have been finding this blog in an effort to locate the page for the 2007 Challenge.
The Challenge is indeed running again, but I don't believe they have created a law firm-specific launch page for the event. Too bad, since seeing running totals for each firm really helped to drive the donation competition last year!
To find your firm and donate, go to the Holiday Challenge page and click on Click here to see if your group is registered .
I encourage you to give generously to this very worthy cause! Some details about the Daily Bread Food Bank and the Law Firm Challenge --
About the Daily Bread Food Bank
The Daily Bread Food Bank is Toronto's leader in the fight against hunger. Each month, they serve over 75,000 people in the GTA through their network of 160 member agencies and over 190 food relief programs. Member agencies run neighbourhood food banks where people come to access food hampers, as well as meal programs where people can access prepared meals such as soups or casseroles.
Law Firm Challenge
For the past several years, the articling students at Blakes have been coordinating the Law Firm Challenge in an effort to help raise money and food at this critical time of the year. The Challenge will be two-fold: a per capita competition, and an overall cumulative competition. Donations of food will be assigned a monetary value for the purposed of the challenge. MacLeod Dixon won in the donations per capita category last year, raising $208.10 per member of the firm, while McCarthy Tetrault won in the overall funds raised category, with a total of $28,610.60 in donations.
