Lommen Abdo is joining other Twin Cities area law firms in the fight to end hunger through Second Harvest Heartland’s first annual Overrule Hunger competition! Through September 21st, lawyers, their staffs, vendors, clients and other connections will compete to support Second Harvest Heartland and the 1 in 8 children in Minnesota who are hungry. Donations made during the campaign will be matched by a group of generous donors, up to $30,000!

Winners will be based on the most raised per capita for small, medium, and large firms. Firms will be awarded with a traveling trophy to showcase throughout the year, and bragging rights within the legal community. But the biggest winner will be the kids who have enough to eat.

Lommen Abdo has long been a supporter of Second Harvest Heartland, most often providing financial support with a donation in the name of our clients during the holiday season. But this year, we’ve been asked to do something a bit different – join five other local firms to raise funds for the organization in an online campaign that runs for just two weeks – September 10th to September 21st. Here’s Lommen Abdo’s team page: https://second-harvest-heartland.everydayhero.com/us/team-lommen-abdo. The other teams participating to-date include:

Large firms
Dorsey & Whitney
Arthur Chapman

Medium firms
Brooks Cameron & Huebsch
Lommen Abdo

Small firms
Leoniede M. Brennan

Our team was created to make a difference towards ending hunger by raising money in support of Overrule Hunger for Second Harvest Heartland. Today, one in 11 people in Minnesota are living with hunger. Help us make a difference and reach our goal by donating using the “give now” button on our firm page at https://second-harvest-heartland.everydayhero.com/us/team-lommen-abdo. And note: The winner is not based on the most raised, but rather based on the per capita total (total raised by team divided by number of employees listed on registration). So every dollar helps! Won’t you add your dollars to this worthwhile event?

And there’s some great news that goes along with this – thanks to a group of generous donors, donations made to Overrule Hunger will be matched dollar-to-dollar, up to $30,000! An amazing fact — for every $10 donated Second Harvest Heartland can provide 60 meals for hungry Minnesotans!

The more people who know about the issue of hunger, the bigger our impact so help spread the word about Overrule Hunger by sharing with your friends and family.
