NCAJ Food Drive

Kristina Thompson organized the collection of non-perishable food items for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice program “Dare to Care: Feed Those in Need” food drive. This project is sponsored by the New Lawyers Division of the NCAJ, and is a statewide program done on an annual basis. In 2010, Mrs. Thompson organized a collection of over 2,000 pounds of food to help replenish the Food Drive’s resources for Thanksgiving. Click here for more information on the Food Bank.


Raleigh’s Adopt-A-Stream Program

Mr. Jernigan recently participated in a stream clean-up under the sponsorship of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church. He helped clean a branch of the Beaverdam Creek which runs from Wade Avenue to Glenwood Avenue. Sources of pollution are varied and hard to detect simply through the monitoring of water quality, so the City has declared that the best way to seek out the pollution sources is to physically walk the streams.
