Best Class Fall Food Drive FINAL TALLY

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 who came together to donate 9,693 lbs and $ to Harvest Hope. They just beat out the Class of 2022 who collected a very respectable 7,209.25!  The Class of 2020 pull up the rear with just 897, giving the Law School a total of 17, 799.25.  Many families will have an abundant table this Thanksgiving because of your generosity. Thanks all.

And a special shout out to the small but very strong team who loaded the truck!

Thanks….

…to everyone who donated tuna and peanut butter for the Fall Best Class Food Drive. The Class of 2020 is to be congratulated for bringing in the most “poundage”.  “Poundage” in the law school is calculated as actual weight plus 1lb. for every dollar!  With a total of 4, 808 “pounds” we made a great difference and helped Harvest Hope Food Bank address food insecurity in SC.

It may be difficult to believe but all this peanut butter will be distributed within a week! The demand is high!

A special thanks to Patty Morr, Maura Ashton, and the other members of the Pro Bono Board who helped collect money, as well as weigh and load the food. We really hope that Professor Stoughton’s classes are enjoying no cold calling!  Peanut butter works!
