Hammerco 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.
This year, in addition to our annual charitable giving program, we are making three special donations to mark our 20th anniversary, linked to a staff contest.
We asked our employees to come up with ideas that have the number 20 in them, connected to a charitable act or donation. On July 20, September 20 and November 20, we will honor the three charities and ideas which received the most votes.
We will donate 20 months of education to this deserving Canadian non-profit organization that focuses on providing educational opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk children in South Africa and Canada to further development and alleviate poverty.
Vancouver Association for the Survivors of Torture (VAST)
Our donation funds 20 counselling sessions to support refugee mental health and recovery. VAST provides trauma-focused physiological counselling, group support, documentation to support refugee claims, community building, education and referral services for health, housing and settlement services for those in need.
Our staff chose 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.
Hammerco will donate 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.
Childhood sexual abuse or assault can have far-reaching effects that are unique to each survivor. Survivors often experience a range of emotions, including shame, guilt, depression, and anger.
Hammerco Lawyers is partnering with Toronto law firm KND Complex Litigation on a potential class action lawsuit against GoTo Technologies USA, Inc. and related companies.
