District 3 of the Paralegal Division of the State Bar of Texas and the FWPA Team Up for Community Service Project

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on March 13, 2012

On Thursday, March 8, Paralegal Division District 3 joined with the Fort Worth Paralegal Association (FWPA) to volunteer at the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB).  The volunteers worked on the quality control team to sort donated food items for later distribution to the TAFB clients.  This collaborative event provided an avenue to serve the District 3 community as well as providing a way for two paralegal professional organizations to network.

The TAFB serves clients in the 13 counties in and around the Fort Worth area.  The agency is supported by the generous donations of food items and service hours of dedicated volunteers.  The TAFB’s targeted client group includes children, the elderly, the several disabled, victims of chronic diseases, victims of abuse, the working poor and the unemployed.  Since its founding in 1981, the TAFB has assisted with the distribution of 314,000,000 pounds of food to help alleviate hunger.

The volunteer team was composed of 13 people, including: Jessica Acosta, Sherry Brooks, Kelly Cobb, David Cobb, Debbie House, Gina Landingham, Tish Martin, Allen Mihecoby, Star Moore, Janice Piggott, Michele Rayburn, Julie Sherman, and Brenda Shirley
