Three Point Hoops to Help the Hungry
LANSING, Mich. – Abood Law Firm helped feed the hungry though their sponsorship of the “Beyond The Arc” campaign. For each three point shot made by a Spartan basketball player during a 2017-2018 Michigan State University regular season game, Abood Law Firm donated $25 to Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB). The women’s team shot 173 three point shots, and the men’s team shot 265. Abood Law donated $10,950 to GLFB to celebrate 438 total three point shots!
“Campaigns like this are just a little reminder that the need continues in our community,” said Kelly Miller, Development & Major Gifts Manager at Greater Lansing Food Bank. “Abood Law Firm, the MSU athletes and Fox Sports found a way to support the community while enjoying the game. It’s an amazing partnership for everyone.”
