At Blitz Law Group, LLP, it’s our goal to create a positive impact in our local communities. Whether we’re helping victims recover after personal injuries or helping families seek justice after a wrongful death, we strive to support our community.
Our law group understands that there’s many ways to help, which is why we proudly partnered with Grass Roots Grocery to deliver over 8,000 pounds of unsold produce to families throughout the Bronx, NY, area. We successfully raised $17,355 for the event on April 8th, surpassing the initial goal of $15,000.
The food drive kicked off at 9am at 1957 Turnbull Avenue, which is a 20-minute drive from Bronx’s Upper East Side. The founder of Grass Roots Grocery, Dan Zauderer, began by sharing his story of how he founded his non-profit organization. While teaching in the South Bronx, he discovered that one in four of his students’ families either skipped meals or ate very little, even though they were living near the largest produce market in the U.S.
After hearing Dan’s story, volunteers then sorted through and packed over 8,000 pounds of unsold produce. At around 10:30 am, volunteers then delivered packaged produce to families in the area. With 30+ community sites helmed by a different community leader, our Blitz Law Group and Grass Roots Grocery team ensured families in need received their produce packages.
Alongside helping neighbors in need, the food drive also gave the opportunity for volunteers to make a positive impact in their community. For years now, our attorneys have used the power of the law to help victims and their families receive compensation or legal representation. However, our team also recognizes that sometimes the community needs immediate help in the form of resources like food.
Blitz Law Group, LLP, is proud to have helped Grass Roots Grocery raise the necessary money to continue their mission.
