The Stern Family Summer Project, now in its 12th year, is made possible by the generous support of long-time Holland & Hart client and Holland & Hart Foundation donor, the Stern family. This project encourages the daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren of attorneys and staff at Holland & Hart to learn about the value of philanthropy and volunteerism from an early age, and also helps benefit the organizations that are selected by the kids who participate.
To participate, a child needs to volunteer or, if too young to volunteer, to visit an organization of that child’s choosing. After volunteering or visiting, the child writes a letter or submits a drawing to the Holland & Hart Foundation telling us about the experience. A donation is then made directly from the Holland & Hart Foundation to the organization in the name of the child.
This year, 24 children ranging in age from 3 to age 17 with connections to the firm’s Boise, Boulder, Cheyenne, Denver, and Salt Lake City offices volunteered or visited an organization of their choice, and $2,400 was donated to 12 different organizations on behalf of the Stern Family.
Please take a moment to enjoy these children’s experiences through the attached letters, drawings, and photos.
