Beam Legal Team is a proud sponsor of the Fill a Bag, Fill a Bus food drive! This was our second year supporting the community driven program, which works to make an immediate impact on hunger in Chicago and Cook County, where 1 in 5 children face food insecurity. Our charitable donation, which was recently profiled by WCIU, helps provide fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, and proteins to over 812,000 local residents.
Organized by WCIU, The U, the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Jewel-Osco, Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Company, and METV FM, the Fill a Bag, Fill a Bus food drive has the buying power to turn just $1 dollar into 3 meals. Our continued sponsorship and recent donation of $5,000 equates to more than 15,000 meals for families across the region.
As a law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of parents and children following preventable birth injuries, we value the trust and confidence local families place in our team during some of the most difficult times in their lives. Because we know food insecurity creates similar fears and frustrations for families in need, our support of events like Fill a Bag, Fill a Bus are a way for us to give back to the very communities that have made us one of the most trusted birth injury firms in the nation.
