Donate Today! Help Lawyers Against Hunger Help Families in Need

Last November, McIntyre Law hosted its 1st Annual Day of Kindness. The practice combined forces with Angel Food Ministries, several other Oklahoma law firms, the Oklahoma Association for Justice and local businesses – in addition to the U.S. Air Force and the Local 157 of the Oklahoma City Fire Department – to raise money for the event.

The money raised was used to provide Thanksgiving meals to more than 4,500 hungry Oklahomans. It was an amazing day that touched many lives. Pictures from last year’s event can be viewed at www.McIntyreLaw.com under the “Community Events” tab or at Lawyers Against Hunger’s Facebook page.

 

To that end, McIntyre Law is determined to make this year’s event even bigger!  Lawyers Against Hunger, Inc. was recently formed as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is to help feed the hungry.

The name in no way implies that only lawyers can contribute to the event. In fact, many local businesses are already sending checks to purchase turkeys for the needy.  The turkeys cost approximately $20 each. Because of a nationwide turkey shortage, orders must be placed as soon as possible. A donation of any amount is helpful and needed.

In addition to the Oklahoma Association for Justice, lawyers from the Oklahoma County Bar Association, Cleveland County Bar Association and Tulsa County Bar Association have challenged each other to see which County Bar can raise the most funds.

Noble McIntyre of McIntyre Law has donated $5,000 to kickstart the Oklahoma County efforts.

David Bernstein of Bernstein Law has matched that challenge with his $5,000 donation to get the Cleveland County efforts started.  Hugh Robert of Sherwood & McCormick donated $2,500 to kickstart Tulsa County.

Checks from other lawyers and businesses from all over the state are pouring in, virtually ensuring that this year’s event will be even bigger and better than last year.

This year, there will be three turkey distribution sites to ensure more hungry Oklahomans are reached:

Oklahoma County: Turkey registration and distribution will occur at the offices of McIntyre Law, located at 8601 South Western Avenue, Oklahoma City, on November 17, 2011, beginning at 1 p.m.

Cleveland County: Registration and distribution will occur at the offices of David Bernstein located at 104 W. Gray, Norman, on November 18, 2011 at 1 p.m.

Tulsa County: Registration and distribution will occur at in the Iron Gate Ministries parking lot at Sixth and Cincinnati in Downtown Tulsa on November 18, 2011 at 11 a.m.

Donations should be payable to Lawyers Against Hunger, Inc. and delivered or mailed to Noble McIntyre at 8601 South Western Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73139.
