Attorneys and staff at Brinkley Morgan, a full-service law firm with offices in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton, recently hosted a summer food drive that collected more than 2,000 pounds of food for Feeding South Florida, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving hungry children, families and individuals from Palm Beach to Monroe counties. According to Feeding South Florida, more than 785,040 individuals experience food insecurity in South Florida, including 280,630 children. “Hunger does not discriminate,” said Feeding South Florida CEO Paco Vélez. “It affects children, the working poor, the elderly, physically and mentally disabled adults, veterans, and the homeless. Thanks to Brinkley Morgan’s donation, we can now provide an additional 1,694 meals to those who are most affected by food insecurity.” The two-month food drive was an initiative of Brinkley Morgan Cares, the law firm’s charitable campaign dedicated to supporting local non-profits and helping people in need. Through the years, Brinkley Morgan has donated tens of thousands of pounds of food to organizations such as the Pantry of Broward, Boca Helping Hands and Kids In Distress of Broward and Palm Beach Counties, as well as Feeding South Florida. The firm’s attorneys and staff also have donated and distributed hundreds of new Halloween costumes to pediatric patients at the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center, donated hundreds of dollars in gift cards to The Lord’s Place, organized and hosted a Suits and Sneakers Challenge fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society, collected school supplies for ChildNet of Broward and Palm Beach counties, held a book drive benefiting the Palm Beach Literacy Coalition, and collected hundreds of ties and shoes for the Broward Partnership for the Homeless.
