Meyer Capel Announces Results from the Lawyers Feeding Illinois Campaign

From the ISBA Chicago Regional Office

The Awards Ceremony for the Illinois State Bar Association’s Lawyers Feeding Illinois Campaign was held May 8th at the ISBA Chicago Regional Office. Meyer Capel was one of 95 teams of attorneys in Illinois who participated in this state-wide campaign to raise funds and food for our local food banks. Thanks to the efforts and generosity of many, Meyer Capel was able to collect over 4,200 pounds of food and $4,921! The food and funds raised by Meyer Capel and its partners were distributed to the Eastern Illinois Foodbank, and will be enough to provide 29,619 meals to needy families in our local community.

The state-wide campaign raised more than $250,000 and 11,495 pounds of food, collecting more than enough to surpass the campaign’s goal of providing one million meals throughout the state of Illinois. The campaign was generously underwritten by Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund, Inc., who made a lead gift to cover processing fees up to $200,000 and ultimately won in the category of large law firm, in which Meyer Capel also participated.

We sincerely appreciate the efforts and donations from all of the individuals, groups and businesses who participated in this campaign. We would especially like to thank those local businesses who participated as sponsors: Bartlett Management, Inc., Busey Bank, CliftonLarsonAllen LLP, Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell, McGladrey LLP, Monical’s Pizza Corporation and Kemper CPA Group LLP.
