PSBJ Honors Stokes Lawrence With Corporate Citizenship Award for Fourth Year
Once again, the Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ) has named Stokes Lawrence among the top 75 Corporate Philanthropists in the region. This is the fourth time the firm has been recognized for its philanthropic and community service efforts.
Each year, the PSBJ surveys area businesses on their corporate giving and community service activities. The publication then ranks the top 75 businesses based on their philanthropic activities and efforts to strengthen the community.
“It is an honor to receive this distinction. Doing our part to give back and better the community is an integral part of our culture,” said Managing Shareholder Kelly Twiss Noonan.
Stokes Lawrence provides financial support to local organizations that promote social justice and help less fortunate individuals and families. In addition, firm’s employees regularly donate their time and talents to these organizations, including providing hundreds of hours of free legal work to improve access to the civil justice system to some of the community’s most vulnerable citizens. Two years ago, the firm also established the Stokes Lawrence Charitable Foundation, which supports Northwest charities that promote social justice and provide essential services such as food, housing, clothing, education and health care to individuals and families in need. Recipients of donations from the Foundation have included the Campaign for Equal Justice, the Washington State Bar Foundation, the Future of the Law Institute and Northwest Harvest.
