Share Lawyers Plays Ball!
Thanks to everyone who came out for our first Share Lawyers baseball game. The weather was perfect for our late-summer game at Tournament Park, and our staff and their families had a great time playing a casual ball game and eating hotdogs and hamburgers from a local food truck. We didn’t keep score, but we all felt like winners after spending some quality time together.
Sharing a Coffee with the Neighbourhood
In partnership with Grounded coffee bar, a new local coffee shop near 3442 Yonge Street, Share Lawyers handed out free coffee and treats for passersby. The Share Lawyers team met many community members and hopes to continue to meet with more of our community members in Toronto and across the country.
Monthly Happy Hour at the Office
While the Share Lawyers team has a hybrid model (work from home and in-office), we all look forward to the days when we are able to see each other in person. Every few weeks, Share Lawyers has a happy hour event where the team celebrates birthdays, anniversaries and often has special surprises show up, like a food truck or treats from a local restaurant.
Community Fridge Project
In 2021, Share Lawyers participated in the Community Fridge project, a fundraising initiative that offers free food to combat food insecurity in Toronto.
The initiative takes place in 8 communities across Toronto, offering free food to anyone who needs it and is stocked by anyone who can donate. The motto is: take what you need, leave what you can.
We want to say a big thank you to Susy Goldstein who donated her time to purchase and fill fridges for 6 months of 2021. We'd also like to thank everyone who donated and helped feed someone in need.
Kids Help Phone
Since 2013 we have been supporting Kids Help Phone as a way to give back to the community. The choice to support this organization was based on finding a non-denominational support network that provides much-needed help for kids and teenagers in crisis. Kids who may not have anywhere else to turn and who want and need the confidentiality offered by Kids Help Phone so that they do not feel judged when airing their problems.
The Share Lawyers Community has created and participated in a number of events in support of Kids Help Phone, including:
- Kids Help Phone Walkathon
- Goodies For Giving Cookbook
- Kids Help Phone T-Shirt Fridays
- Kids Help Phone Lunches
