  • Volunteering at Gleaners Community Food Bank

    What a great feeling it is to pack boxes and boxes of food for so many people less fortunate. Our mission on this day was to pack each box with 30 pounds of canned goods and dry goods, ideally to put together several meals. During our session, I was told our group packed more than 2,000 pounds of food. Again, what a great feeling!

  • FMSC MobilPack

    Over the weekend I volunteered at a MobilPack for Feed My Starving Children. I worked in a team to hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which we then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets to be shipped around the world. On my shift we packed 30,672 meals which will feed 84 children for a year.

  • Old Fashioned Lemonade Stand

    I organized and worked with four teams of Clark Hill attorneys and staff selling lemonade in front of Clark Hill’s entrance on Old Woodward Avenue in downtown Birmingham. Thank you to the volunteers – Kristie Drogosch, Carol Ayres, Pam Fantazian, Terri Shoop, Mariah Mumford, Linda McCauley, Catherine Parker and Geri DiCicco for doing such a wonderful job at squeezing all that cash out of people just walking down the street. I also want to thank Lonnie and Todd from Office Services for helping with the set-up and teardown. Not only did we have a lot of fun doing it, astonishingly, we raised over $1,320. In the picture above, we are presenting a cashier’s check to a Gleaners representative.
