Continuing with our “Year of Giving” in celebration of our 20th Anniversary, we empowered our employees to come up with ideas that have the number 20 in them, connected to a charitable act or donation. On July 20th, September 20th and November 20th, we honor the three charities and ideas which received the most votes.
For today’s charitable cause, our staff has chosen The Shoebox Project for Women, a registered charity that collects and distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women impacted by homelessness in communities across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. Today, we will be donating 20 shoeboxes for Vancouver women who have been displaced from their homes and estranged from their families. These women often report feeling disconnected from society, invisible and alone. A Shoebox gift is a powerful reminder for a woman that she has not been forgotten and that she remains a valued and respected member of her community.

Hammerberg Lawyers LLP has a long-standing history of charitable giving. We believe in giving back to the community where we live and work, to our neighbours, friends and fellow British Columbians.
