Steeg Law has a long-standing relationship with New Orleans CREW, the premier commercial real estate association in the Greater New Orleans Area for women from all disciplines of commercial real estate, both through sponsorship and participation. Senior associate Lillian Eyrich is a member, Past Secretary and Past Board Member of CREW, and associate Margaret Glass is a member of both the organization and Philanthropy Committee.
This year, New Orleans CREW is once again helping to raise money for Second Harvest to support its mission to fight hunger across South Louisiana, by raising awareness for the organization’s Rubber Duck Derby. This annual event brings thousands of rubber ducks to a race at Big Lake at City Park, and every duck represents one kind person stepping up for families in crisis.
When you adopt your duck for just $5, you provide 20 meals for children, families, and seniors facing hunger. With the record hunger created by COVID-19, Second Harvest needs your help more than ever.
When you adopt your $5 duck, you will have a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize, a $250 gift certificate to Delta World Tire, a $1,000 gift certificate to Zuppardo’s Family Market & other great prizes!
Adopt your duck now to help Second Harvest reach their goal of racing 25,000 ducks.

About Second Harvest Food Bank
One in five households in Louisiana is at risk of hunger. Across Louisiana and the region, the rising cost of food, housing, and utilities, coupled with high unemployment and low-wage jobs have increased the need for emergency food assistance. Many families are asking for help for the first time. When bills loom and impossible decisions must be made, grocery lists are often cut first. Meals are skipped. Parents go without to make sure their children are fed.
Second Harvest Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger in South Louisiana by providing food access, advocacy, education, and disaster response. Second Harvest provides food and support to 700+ community partners and programs across 23 parishes.
Through their food distribution programs, community kitchen meal service, nutrition education, and public benefits assistance, we are helping to create pathways out of poverty. Every year, Second Harvest secures millions of pounds of food that otherwise would have gone to waste. Their work helps ensure that these meals make it to the dinner tables of thousands of families struggling with hunger in South Louisiana.
