Abstract

Wednesday, November 20, 1996 WRITER: Kathy R. Pharr, (706) 542-5172 CONTACT: Kathy R. Pharr, (706) 542-5172 Christy Calbos,, Phi Alpha Delta Justice UGA LAW STUDENTS \u22BUY\u22 AMNESTY DURING THIRD ANNUAL THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE ATHENS, Ga. -- Cries of \u22Cream of Chicken Immunity!\u22 and \u22Green Bean Amnesty!\u22 will once again ring out in the classrooms of the University of Georgia School of Law on Thursday and Friday, November 21 and 22, as the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity sponsors its third annual Amnesty Day Canned Food Drive. Phi Alpha Delta\u27s drives in the previous two years have raised nearly a ton of food and $250 in cash donations for the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank. \u22The Amnesty Day Food Drive is a fun way for law students to help serve the local community,\u22 said Phi Alpha Delta Justice Christy Calbos. \u22I\u27m optimistic that with such a large number of classes and professors participating, we\u27ll have a fantastic contribution for the Food Bank.\u22 To be granted amnesty from a professor\u27s probing legal questions, students must hold up their can of food when called upon. At the end of each class, the cans are collected. Phi Alpha Delta will also sell cans of food for those who forget to bring them or run out before the end of the days\u27 classes, and will donate profits from the sale of the goods to the Food Bank. \u22We are extremely excited about Phi Alpha Delta\u27s continued participation in the Food Bank\u27s Holiday Can-a-thon,\u22 said law professor Paul Heald, chair of the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank. \u22If all student groups at the University were as civic-minded, there\u27d be no hungry people in Athens.\u22 The Athens Area Emergency Food Bank assists approximately 6,000 people each year by providing immediate assistance to those who are awaiting the arrival of food stamps or who have other emergency needs. Individuals who qualify for aid can receive a two-week supply of food once every six months. -30
