In addition, financial donations were made to both organizations. Goodell DeVries would like to extend thanks to everyone who participated in this year's food drive. For anyone who is interested, donations to both organizations can be made throughout the year on their websites,  www.lawyersagainsthunger.org and www.philabundance.org.
