Roll Out the Barrels Giving Campaign Breaks Records

Each year the DBA YLD organizes the Roll Out the Barrels Giving Campaign in support of Metro Caring, a local anti-hunger organization. The campaign is centered around the collection of primarily canned food donations through barrels that are delivered to each participating organization. As with everything else in 2020, the Campaign dealt with a new set of challenges, including a switch to being a monetary campaign. But the level of support from the legal community exceeded all expectations and made this the most successful Campaign ever, raising $40,371 in support of Metro Caring!

The winning firms, by firm size, were:

■ 1-10 employees: Alderman Bernstein

■ 11-21 employees: Zaner Harden Law

■ 22-60 employees: Gordon & Rees Scully Mansukhani

■ 101-150 employees: Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath

■ 150+ employees: Denver District Attorney's Office

Other participating firms and organizations included Block & Chapleau; Fortis Law Partners; Harris, Karstaedt, Jamison & Powers, PC; Husch Blackwell; Lass Moses Ramp & Cooper; Littler Denver; Lumen, Polsinelli PC; and Shook Hardy & Bacon. Many thanks to everyone who participated and assisted in supporting Metro Caring.

To participate in next year's campaign, which runs from mid-November through the end of December, contact Elizabeth Akalin at eakalin@cba.org.
