LLI Case Western Summer Institute Students Conducting Food Bank Drive

By Sarah Miller on June 26, 2014 - 4:55pm

The Law and Leadership 2014 Institute Summer Program is off to a great start at Case Western Reserve University School of Law! Tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders have undertaken a community service project in conjunction with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.  Each grade has been divided into the following subgroups:

  • Media - 12th graders
  • Flyers - 11th graders
  • Posters - 10th graders

Each group is responsible for an aspect of the marketing and donation campaign. The students have set a goal to raise 100 donations in two weeks!  The food drive will end on July 9 and all of the donations will be delivered to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank on Thursday, July 10. Students will promote the campaign at the law school and campus wide at Case and CSU.

The twelfth grade students have drafted a press release with further details about the project and ways to get involved:

One in six people are food insecure; they do not know where their next meal will come from.  The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Northeast Ohio.  They distribute 90,000 pounds of food a day.  One-third of the recipients are children.  They cannot do it alone.  We ask you to reach out a hand and help them feed millions just by donating a single can or food item.  “Hunger strikes at the core of a person’s dignity.” 

Items eligible for donation:

  • Canned meats
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly
  • Soups
  • Cereal
  • Vegetables, Fruits (canned)
  • Beans (dried or canned)
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Boxed Meals
  • Pasta and Pasta Sauce
  • Rice
  • Fruit Juice
  • Sugar and Flour
  • Coffee and Tea

Please drop all donations off on the ground floor of Gund Hall on the Case Western Reserve University Campus at 11075 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio 44106-7148.

Way to go LLI Case Western students, keep up the great work!
