Farris Lawyers and Staff Give Generously this Holiday Season

The end of 2013 marks the end of another busy fundraising season at Farris. This year’s United Way campaign raised $155,000 for community services in Victoria, Kelowna and Vancouver.

The firm also raised $4,500 for the Canadian Red Cross for Typhoon Haiyan relief effort, which will be matched by both the provincial and federal governments.

Our Greater Vancouver Food Bank drive collected $1,800 in donations and six boxes of food to assist those in need.

And finally, Farris participated in the Salvation Army’s “Adopt-a-Family” program.  The families available for adoption through this program are experiencing financial difficulties and are in need of food, clothing, and basic household items.  Each family creates a Christmas wish list and is matched with a volunteer donor team who collect gifts and funds of their behalf. This year, Farris helped a family of seven celebrate the season, collecting $3,000 to purchase gifts for under their tree.

Happy Holidays from everyone at Farris!
