Students Donate More Than 12,117 Cans of FoodPosted on: 11/25/2013
The Public Interest Law Society and Phi Alpha Delta collected and donated more than 12,117 cans of food to benefit Feeding South Florida and the National Security and Law Society’s Annual Fisher House Thanksgiving Dinner. The cans were collected during the “Canned Immunity” food drive held in November. As part of the food drive, law students donate cans in their classes to receive immunity. “Canned Immunity” is a Law Center tradition where students may be entitled to pass if called on in class by their professor. The student’s primary motivation, however, was to reach out to those less fortunate. Competition played a role in the donation process. Classes competed to have the highest number of donations and Michael Flynn’s Torts class got that honor with 5,900 cans.
