Food Giveaway for Orange County's Hungry This Weekend

Second Harvest Food Bank and Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys to donate food to area's needy Saturday, April 21, 2012.

Newport Beach, CA, April 18, 2012 - Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys are donating food to the area's hungry this Saturday, April 21, 2012 at the Adopt A Pantry in Santa Ana located at 1971 E. Fourth Street. The food donation begins at 12:30 PM.

In 2004, Census Data estimated that 300,000 residents in Orange County lived at or below the federal poverty level. In 2005, it was estimated that almost 1 million residents in Orange County lived within 200% of that poverty level.

John Bisnar, founder of BISNAR CHASE, says these statistics coupled with the recent recession has impacted many area residents, forcing them to make some tough decisions. "When people have to choose between food and gas, food and health care or food and heat, they usually go to bed hungry," said Bisnar. "We don't want people to have to choose. We want to put food on the table so that no one goes hungry."

Bisnar Chase sponsors bi-monthly food giveaways and has teamed up with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County five times. This is the firm's sixth sponsorship.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, a member of Feeding America, is the largest private hunger relief organization in the county, partnering with more than 470 charitable organizations to feed an average of 240,000 people each month. Since 1983, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County has distributed more than 272 million pounds of safe and nutritious surplus food. For every dollar that is donated, 94.6 cents goes directly to hunger-relief programs. To learn more, please visit http://www.feedoc.org.

Bisnar is asking other businesses in the area, as well as individual residents, to contribute to feeding the hungry in Orange County by volunteering man hours or donating money to help Second Harvest distribute food.

"We believe it's a corporate responsibility, as well as a personal one, to do what we can to help people struggling with financial choices," said Bisnar. "A part of putting that responsibility into action is to sponsor bi-monthly food pantry distributions. We want others to do the same."

Individuals who would like to help hand out food at Saturday's event are asked to email Danielle Olson of BISNAR CHASE at dolson@bisnarchase.com. Businesses who would like to sponsor food giveaways are asked to visit the Second Harvest Food Bank website at http://www.FeedOC.org to learn how to donate funds, food and/or time.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“We received an email from A.G. Edwards stating they have received the settlement check from Nissan. Once again, I cannot begin to articulate our gratitude to the Bisnar Chase staff - we are so very thankful for all you have done for Josh. As parents, Charlotte and I can rest in peace, when that day comes, knowing that Josh's needs have been taken care of, and his financial future is in good hands with sound financial planners at A.G. Edwards. On December 17, 2003 we received a call from the paramedics stating that Josh and Lisa had been in a severe accident, and we needed to meet them at the emergency room. I remember telling God that I can deal with missing limbs because they can be replaced, but please do not take him from us. A month later we met with members of your staff for the first time, Josh had a traumatic brain injury and his future was looking pretty bleak; we had no idea where he would be eighteen months later. All we could think of at the time was that our son's future, his goals, and dreams had been taken from him so abruptly. As time passed, Josh continued to improve and he began his journey of recovery. Many have been involved in this process, and you and your staff have been an integral part of Josh's recovery, and we will be forever grateful. God has brought so many people into our lives, and we are so very blessed. Numerous emails were sent to Personal Injury Attorney's. John...you were on a ski trip at Big Bear with your family, and you were the only Personal Injury Attorney to respond - I believe this was divine intervention. Josh has a professor from Mt. San Jacinto College who has taken him "under his wing," and is showing him other career possibilities. John, the future looks good for Josh - thank you!”

“Recently, I had to find a personal injury attorney on a case that had special circumstances. I had a car accident that is almost due to expire and unfortunately, in the beginning, I decided no [sic] to get an attorney. And oh boy am I regretting it. I didn't have a lot of respect for lawyers before this. And because of that, I made the decision not to represent myself two years ago. Altho [sic] they were not able to help me, Mr. Bisnar was so helpful that he directed me in a manner that I didn't need an attorney at all. He was funny and charming. It was my fault for not going the standard route, but next time, I will definitely not hesitate to contact these attorneys for any of my legal needs. I was VERY impressed. I don't use those words lightly (especially about attorneys!) so this is no bull! neither was Mr. Bisnar of Bisnar and Chase.”

“My car accident happened in April. I called Bisnar Chase, and was able to get information that helped me deal with the insurance on my own. They didn't take my case, but Mary took my call both times I called; she was so very helpful!! I hope I don't need them again, but if I do, I know they'll help me. FIVE STARS!!”
