The Connecticut Bar Association (CBA) Workers’ Compensation Section donated over $11,000 to Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare at their Section meeting on November 9. The donated funds were proceeds from the 19th Annual Verrilli-Belkin Workers' Compensation Charity Golf Event held on September 14. Since the inception of the event in 1999, the section has raised over $200,000 for the two food assistance organizations.

 

Connecticut Food Bank’s Chief Executive Officer Bernard J. Beaudreau stated, “Thanks to you [the CBA Workers’ Compensation Section] we are able to feed more people in our communities every day.”

 

 

The Workers’ Compensation Section aims to organize the members of the CBA who are workers’ compensation practitioners and to educate all members of the bar from all sides at all levels of expertise as to workers’ compensation law. Furthermore, the section attempts to provide services to organizations other than the CBA when those organizations are involved in the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation system. The section consists of members who represent injured workers, employers, and insurers, as well as the State of Connecticut and the Second Injury Fund.

 

The Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare partners with the food industry, food growers, donors, and volunteers to distribute food to people across Connecticut.

 

The CBA is collecting monetary and food donations for Foodshare this holiday. Learn how you can contribute.
