Hammerberg Lawyers, one of Rise Women’s Legal Centre’s generous ongoing supporters, reached out to Rise with a wonderful offer for us and our clients. Every year, as part of their firm-wide holiday tradition, they like to create special gift baskets for families in the community who could use some extra holiday cheer. This year, Hammerberg asked Rise to help them find some families who might welcome a little help with their holiday celebrations.
The Hammerberg staff’s favourite thing about their tradition is shopping for each family specially, so that each basket is as welcome and perfectly suited to its recipients as possible. We asked each mum for some details about her kids (their ages, sizes, favourite colours), their family’s dietary habits, and if there was something special the kids were hoping for this year. We anonymized the information and passed it along to the Hammerberg Lawyers team. Hammerberg’s Chief Operating Officer Tracey Scher, who spearheaded the project, dropped everything off to Rise this week, and the bounty was home-delivered by Rise staff.
In addition to the personalized baskets, Hammerberg Lawyers contributed over a dozen $100 gift cards to Great Canadian Superstore, to be distributed by Rise to some of our clients whose families could use the extra holiday cheer.
Rise would like to thank Hammerberg Lawyers for their incredibly generous support throughout this exciting first year. We’re proud to count them among our friends in the legal community.
