Stories of our community involvement
The news is loud and clear: “Stay at home”. But what does this mean for the 6,000+ women and children who access shelter and victim support services every night in Canada?
Together with the Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society, we are partnering to raise awareness of the realities facing women across the country due to intimate partner and family violence. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing vital information on the challenges we face and how you can help through our #SafeSpaces campaign. As essential services in our community, we are committed to supporting women and children throughout this difficult time.
You can be the difference in the lives of those in need in our community! Help us continue our mission by donating:

Here at Pihl Law Corporation, we have a program that allows staff to dress casually on Fridays if they donate a dollar to a fund that gets distributed to different charities based on employee votes. This year, the team at Pihl Law decided to donate to 3 special causes -

1. Child Advocacy Centre of Kelowna
2. Kelowna Women's Shelter
3. BC SPCA Kelowna Branch

The snow is still hanging around, but we are getting excited to start our vegetable gardens in about a month! We will be almost doubling our plot size in Kelowna and will need a lot of help from you amazing volunteers! We have received 5 applications in the past week through Do Some Good, so thank you! Our goal this year is to grow 25,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to feed families in the valley.
We will be supporting many local agencies such as Central Okanagan Community Food Bank, The Salvation Army Central Okanagan, Kelowna's Gospel Mission, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, Karis Support Society, Kelowna Women's Shelter, Freedom's Door, and many more.
