Law firms and local businesses collect donations for food banks

Dec. 04, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A group of law firms and businesses led by the Underwood Law Office are collecting donations through Dec. 5 for the Huntington Area Food Bank and the Eastern Cabell County Humanity Organization Food Bank in Milton.

The idea for the drive came from Underwood Law Office employee Natalie Hall after a drive at the Lighthouse Baptist Church in Milton.

"I was sick and didn't get my donation to the church in time, so I took it over to ECCHO myself and dropped some food off," Hall said in a release. "I was very surprised to see how empty their shelves were when our church has just brought a truckload of food donations over a week before."

Donations of food, non-food items, toys, clothing and money can be made at any of the following locations: Underwood Law Office, 923 3rd Ave., Huntington; R.
