For more than 25 years, the Holland & Hart Foundation has coordinated a massive effort across the firm’s footprint to gather donations of money, food, and other necessities as part of the firm wide food drive. Collection efforts that begin each year in the late result in thousands of pounds of food being donated to people and families in need for the Thanksgiving holiday.
To encourage participation, several years ago we launched an office-wide competition awarding the coveted “Golden Can” to the office or floor that collects the most pounds per person in food or cash.
This year we divided the firm’s offices and floors into three categories: small, medium, and large. As a firm, we collected 29,257 pounds of food. The three Golden Can winners in 2015 are:
- Small Office – Carson City, 210 pounds per person (ppp)
- Medium Office – 28th Floor in Denver, 76 ppp
- Large Office – Las Vegas, 58 ppp
