Lawyers from across the state handed out more than 1,000 Easter hams to Oklahoma families at the McIntyre Law firm on Wednesday, March 27. The McIntyre Law firm and Lawyers Against Hunger partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to hand out the hams along with free hamburgers and drinks for all that attended.
Attorneys and members of the Oklahoma Association for Justice from across the state contributed funds to purchase the hams and food given away.
The Lawyers Against Hunger organization is known for its annual turkey giveaway in November. Last November, more than $80,000 was raised to purchase the thousands of turkeys and food boxes that were given away to Oklahoma families for the holidays.
Lawyers Against Hunger Events Become Increasingly Successful
The Lawyers Against Hunger events become more popular with each successive year. This may explain the crowd of nearly 100 people waiting in line hours before the event began. As a result, volunteers consisting of attorneys and members of the U.S. Air Force and Oklahoma City Fire and Police Departments started distributing the hams nearly two hours earlier than originally planned.
