Students' Annual Canned Food Drive is a Record-breaking Success

Maryland Carey Law students showcased their generosity in a big way this year, donating a record-setting 9,325 food items, totaling 9060.35 pounds—the largest donation ever since Professor Donald Gifford began challenging his and other law school classes to collect food items for local organizations.

Professor Gifford’s evening Torts class lead the group, collecting 157 items and 171.3 pounds per student. Evening students who started law school together in the Fall of 2013 also petitioned to compete in the challenge. Organized by current student Susan DuMont, the group came in second, averaging 30.2 items and 28.31 pounds per student. For the first time, first-year students were responsible for many of the competition logistics, with 1L president Matt Schofield leading the way.

Douglas Memorial Church will receive all food donations and distribute to families at the Gilmor Elementary School in Sandtown-Winchester. A special thanks to Pastor Todd Yeary, a first-year evening student, and members of his congregation for making this partnership possible.
