The Mustard Seed
Carscallen has had a number of volunteer nights and continues to host staff participation events with The Mustard Seed where volunteers from our office help feed 450 people at a shelter for homeless individuals.
The Boys and Girls Club of Calgary
Carscallen LLP proudly supports the Boys & Girls Club of Calgary both through annual financial commitments in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well as through numerous volunteer hours provided by members of our firm.
We participate in the annual summer camp clean-up day where we were very busy landscaping, painting, and repairing bicycles in anticipation of the summer programs and activities.
During the Calgary floods in June 2013, the youth drop-in centre in Calgary’s Belt Line District was adversely affected. Our staff took the intuitive to provide additional financial support through internal fundraising for flood relief.
The Calgary Commuter Challenge
The lawyers and staff at Carscallen LLP are dedicated to reducing our greenhouse gases and environmental footprint on the planet. To that end we participate in the Annual Calgary Communter Challenge to use more sustainable modes of transportation to get to work. http://commuterchallenge.ca/calgary/
We even won First Place in the participation category two years in a row.

The Calgary Foundation
Through staff fundraising, we gathered and delivered donations to CBC Radio Calgary for their fundraising campaign in support of The Calgary Foundations Flood and Rebuilding Fund.
CIBC Run for the Cure
Carscallen lawyers and staff fundraise and participate in the annual CIBC Run for the Cure each year. Staff and lawyer participation in this event is quite high and it grows in popularity each year as we wear team T-shirts and challenge either other to come out and support the work of all the volunteers and other runners in finding a cure.
Canadian Ski Cross Team
Carscallen LLP sponsored the Canadian Ski Cross Team, contributing to help Ashleigh McIvor win a gold medal for Canada at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
