Pennsylvania Bar Association Family Law Section Donates To Feeding PA

July 23, 2020

The Pennsylvania Bar Association Family Law Section recently made a donation to Feeding Pennsylvania to support its member food banks as they continue to face increased demand as a result of COVID-19. The donation will be distributed amongst Feeding PA’s nine-member food banks who serve all 67 counties across the commonwealth. Obermayer partner and immediate past-Chair of the PBA Family Law Section Michael E. Bertin stated:

“The Family Law Section felt that it was important to support Feeding Pennsylvania for its work in assisting food banks secure food and other resources to reduce hunger and food insecurity in communities across the state. With high unemployment rates, the effects of this pandemic are still being felt in many communities which is what moved us to make this donation to help feed hungry families.”
