Over the years, our personal injury law firm in Calgary has always placed a high priority on our professional and personal involvement in the local community. Many of our key staff members and partners hold some level of involvement through volunteering for charitable causes, while also offering our professional insight with positions on several boards for select community organizations. In addition to our community participation which is written about on the Pipella Law Current News Blog, the following outlines a number of the charity and community groups with which we are currently involved.
The Calgary Flame’s Adopt-A-Team Program
Since the 1999-2000 hockey season, businesses and individuals in Calgary have adopted more than 1,400 teams, providing more than 130,000 Calgary Flames hockey tickets to minor hockey players and the community. Every year, Pipella Law provides over 110 Flames tickets to an adopted team. Tickets are distributed to players to attend games with their family members, to thank team volunteers, and to use for team fundraising initiatives.

Since 1945, Spinal Cord Injury Alberta (SCI Alberta), formerly known as the Canadian Paraplegic Association, has been helping Canadians with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities. Started by a core group of WWII veterans in Ontario, the association has expanded to include offices in almost every province. The Canadian Paraplegic Association (Alberta) was founded in 1961. Since then, it has been a leader in offering support, direct service, information and advocacy to Albertans with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities. It carries the mission to, “assist persons with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities to achieve independence, self-reliance and full community participation”.
