Clark Hill Cares Hosts “Cash and Cans” Food Drive to Benefit Community Food Banks the Week of January 18

Jan 13, 2010
DETROIT, MI – Clark Hill Cares, the community outreach program for Clark Hill employees, will host the first ever “Cash and Cans” food drive to benefit local food banks the week of January 18. The firm scheduled the kick off to coincide with Martin Luther King Day as a tribute to Dr. King’s civic leadership, and commitment to community.

“We were overwhelmed by the success of our program in 2009,” said Don Lee, Chief Marketing Officer at Clark Hill PLC. “We wanted a strong start to the year, and after discussing our initiative with our partners at each of the food banks, we decided ‘Cash and Cans’ would most effectively benefit them at this time of the year.”

The Clark Hill “Cash and Cans” Food Drive spans four states – Arizona, Illinois, Michigan and Washington, DC. Each office will collect canned goods and nonperishable items as well as cash contributions.

Clark Hill Cares will be donating the “Cash and Cans” collections to food banks in each of the following communities: Capital Area Food Bank (Washington DC), Desert Mission Food Bank (Phoenix), Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank (Grand Rapids), Gleaner’s Community Food Bank (Detroit), the Greater Chicago Food Depository (Chicago), and the Mid-Michigan Food Bank (Lansing).
