Smith Moore LLP, a law firm with a history of service to the Triad, has once again demonstrated its commitment to the area by collecting the equivalent of 20,091 cans of food for the Greensboro Urban Ministry.
The Smith Moore “I Can Drive” campaign for the Greensboro Urban Ministry challenges attorneys and staff to donate canned food or make cash donations that are used by the ministry for food purchases. The can drive is just one of several ways in which Smith Moore supports the organization.
According to Smith Moore’s Management Committee Chairman, Steve Earp, the can drive is a source of pride for the firm that provides attorneys and staff a chance to come together each year to contribute to those in need in the Triad area. The firm was pleased to have exceeded its total for the 2001 Holiday Season, by more than 20,091 cans.
“The can drive has become part of our holiday celebrations here at Smith Moore,” Earp said. “The current economic conditions have resulted in a high level of need this year. The Greensboro Urban Ministry works to meet the basic needs of so many in our community, and we at Smith Moore are very proud to assist in that mission.”
Greensboro Urban Ministry distributed more than one million pounds of food last year through its Greensboro Food Bank. The organization provides food to various Urban Ministry programs: Emergency Assistance Food Pantry, Potter’s House Community Kitchen, the Weaver House Night Shelter, and approximately 50 other nonprofit organizations in the Greensboro area.
