Students collaborate to serve the greater good this Thanksgiving

Charleston Law student organizations Phi Alpha Delta (PAD) and Phi Delta Phi (PDP) raised 3,400 pounds of food for Canned Immunity, an annual food drive during the holiday season. The canned food donations established a new law school record.

Donations were given to Lowcountry Food Bank to help families in need in the fight against hunger. 

According to the Lowcountry Food Bank:

“9.6% of individuals living in the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina face food insecurity, which is defined as a lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life.”

Charleston Law students Victoria Tappan (Phil Delta Phi) and Lonnie Harvey (Phil Alpha Delta) led their respective student organizations to establish the record.

“Congratulations to Phi Delta Phi and Phil Alpha Delta in reaching this tremendous milestone,” said Charleston School of Law Dean Larry Cunningham. “Our students are tremendous examples of our motto, pro bono populi.

Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity is a professional law fraternity advancing integrity, compassion and courage through service to the student, the school, the profession and the community. 

The International Legal Honor Society of Phi Delta Phi holds a unique position in the history of the United States bench, bar and the law schools. Phi Delta Phi’s reputation as an organization devoted to legal excellence has spread throughout the world.
