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.
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 Commuter 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 partnership donations and staff fundraising, Carscallen as a whole supports initiatives through the Calgary Foundation. Our latest program has been to partner with the Rotary Tom Jackson Stay in School Program. This program focuses on building positive futures for Indigenous students.
The partnership with The Calgary Foundation also allowed us to set up the “Carscallen Fund for Fort McMurray Community Rebuilding” and we are pleased to advise that through this fund we have been able to support the Borealis Counselling Services in Fort Mac.

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.
Operation Christmas Child
For several years, staff and lawyers have come together each November to pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child. http://www.samaritanspurse.ca/operation-christmas-child/ Carscallen LLP continues to support its staff in this worthwhile event each year.
