Lisa L. Bierman and the Rock Island County Circuit Clerk’s Office held their annual holiday food drive during the month of December 2011. The food collected will benefit the River Bend Foodbank. River Bend will be collecting the donations this Week.
Circuit Clerk staff were encouraged to bring in food donations and then were eligible to wear jeans for the day. The Circuit Clerk staff were divided into teams based on department and given another incentive of a pizza party for the team that collected the most items at the end. Our staff were also encouraged to solicit others in the Courthouse to donate to their teams to boost their numbers in an attempt to gather the largest numbers of donations. In the end the Traffic Division Won!
“Working with the public everyday makes you even more aware ofthe need for this kind of help, which is so important to our community,” says Circuit Clerk Lisa Bierman.
“We have Wonderful staff here and they are always eager to help participate with such a valuable resource for those in need. This is actually our 3rd food drive that We have conducted and plan to participate in many more in the future.”
