It’s a busy week at MacLean Law as the staff are gearing up to give back to several community charities. We all know that giving back makes for joyful encounters with people you may not otherwise interact with.
There’s a common theme that runs through Maclean Law that is supporting the community and the staff in their own endeavours. In Vancouver, we are so fortunate to have many organizations that look out for those who have circumstances that may not afford them the ability to proper housing, good food and a job that allows them to be independent.
As a Vancouver family law firm, we know how important it is for everyone with a support system to be able to make it to self-sufficiency. This month MacLean Law staff are supporting worthy organizations.
DRESS FOR SUCCESS®
This year’s Success luncheon celebrates local community leaders including Lynne Platt, U.S Consul General British Columbia & Yukon, Wendy Lisogar-Cocchia, CEO Centruy Plaza Hotel and Spa and Ratana Stephens, Co-Founder & CEO Nature’s Path Foods Inc.
For the second year in a row, MacLean Law is proud to sponsor the DFS Success Luncheon. A group of ten MacLean staff will be inspired by amazing leaders in our community including a Dress for Success® Vancouver client, as they share their success stories and challenges in their lives and careers.
There are so many ways that our community can support the women who walk through the doors of Dress for Success. From cash donations, volunteering, attending community events, participating in the mentoring program or donating work worthy clothing.
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
A community of sponsors
MacLean Law would also like to say thank you to all the sponsors who support DFS and the Success Luncheon: TD Bank, Business In Vancouver, Daily Hive, Shaw TV, Mills Basic, Dignity Memorial and Plum.
UNION GOSPEL MISSION
Last year, Lorne and Linda MacLean with a few staff in tow donned aprons and helped serve up lunch for those in need. Once again, the firm will be visiting UGM to help serve lunch to the community.
UGM is so much more than a soup kitchen. Their mission is to transform communities by overcoming poverty, addiction and homelessness through renewing hope and transforming lives.
- Meals, shelter, outreach and chaplaincy services that relieve suffering and renew hope
- Education and job preparation that equip for successful living
- Preventative programs that build healthy families
- Affordable housing that fosters community and personal contribution
- Life recovery programs that offer freedom from addictive lifestyles
There are so many ways to give back to the community. MacLean Law was thrilled to sponsor the lunch service at UGM. If you or your organization would like to help out the Union Gospel Mission please contact:

BC CANCER FOUNDATION
Our very own Cynda Yeasting has written a memoir love story about the love of her life and the journey they took together through terminal cancer. For Michael, Love Cynda, is a tribute, a love story and a journey of hope and grief that gives back to the BC Cancer Foundation. Christine Adela White of Vancouver Television interviewed Cynda and the episode will be broadcast starting November 7, 2016 and repeated during the week. We encourage you to support Cynda and the BC Cancer Foundation by buying her truly inspiring story.
