RALEIGH, N.C.—Attorneys, staff members and family members from Womble Bond Dickinson’s Raleigh and Research Triangle Park offices spent a Saturday morning helping out at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

The Womble team worked with a few other groups sorting frozen food in the BASF Clean Room, a dedicated, sanitary space to sort and repackage frozen food.  According to the volunteer coordinator, the group sorted almost 6,000 pounds of meat which equates to over 4,000 meals.  The Food Bank’s partner agencies will distribute the sorted meat boxes to local food pantries.

Participating in the service day were Jenni Ammirati, Connie Aull, Jim Broyles, Lisa Dixon, James Dixon, Beth Jones, Press Millen, Dorinda Peacock, Fred Rom, Kim Richmond, Greg Richmond, Anne Saxby, Kristina Schwartz, Anna Short-Slightom, Christina Rardon, Stephen Rardon, Matt Lindsley, Tasha Wilson, Jaime Wilson and Brian Slightom.

Earlier this month, Womble Bond Dickinson was named the Largest Overall Contributor to the North Carolina Bar Association’s Legal Feeding Frenzy campaign for the fifth consecutive year. The 2018 Legal Feeding Frenzy campaign raised a total of 373,000 pounds of food for the state’s neediest citizens, with nearly one-third of that total coming from Womble Bond Dickinson attorneys and staff.
