Dinsmore’s Columbus Office Wins Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s Operation Feed Campaign

August 23, 2016News Releases

Dinsmore & Shohl LLP’s Columbus office won the Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s Operation Feed campaign Law Firm Challenge by collecting $11,175.50 and providing the most meals per capita.

“Dinsmore just completed its eighth Operation Feed campaign which was its largest to-date. Raising 44,702 meals for our hungry neighbors, the firm earned the coveted award for Most Meals Raised Per Capita – Large Firm Category. That means that Dinsmore donated an astonishing 396 meals per associate through their campaign efforts,” said Stephenie Robertson, Mid-Ohio Foodbank Corporate Engagement Manager. “Dinsmore continues to be a strong partner for us.”

The Columbus office fundraised for three months from May through July, holding events like cook offs, jean days and bake sales. During the last week, the office held a friendly competition among the floors to see which one could raise the most money. Each floor found ways to bring in the funds, including raffles and lunches. The final event, the Duct Tape Challenge, culminated the three month long effort. Attorneys and staff donated $1 for a strip of tape and duct taped Chuck Ticknor, Columbus’ Office Managing Partner, to the wall. It ended up being a big hit, and Ticknor’s second floor won the competition.

“We are proud of our continued partnership with Mid-Ohio Foodbank to help provide meals to needy families in our community. The duct taping took a lot longer than I expected, but everyone had a good time. If taping me to a wall can help some families in need, then I am more than happy to oblige,” said Ticknor.

Dinsmore’s Columbus office has been holding fundraising events for Operation Feed for eight years, raising nearly $60,000 for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. The Columbus office features 71 attorneys with an array of practice areas, including health care, construction, estate administration, commercial finance, employment, real estate, workplace safety and corporate and transactional matters.
