Whether it is contributing articles to local newsletters, donating time to local charities, taking the time to help students apply for college, or donating food off our shelves at home to feed the hungry, SK&H tries to give back to the community in whatever way possible. We are especially proud of our continued involvement with and commitment to local youth. Through our student intern program, we offer motivated students the ability to gain meaningful office employment and act as a steady guide through the formative years of high school. As well as facilitating the personal growth of our young adults through the student intern program, we also enjoy the support we are able to give to local athletics, both the Portland State University Womens’ basketball team and the Prineville Cowgirls Volleyball team, through donations of time, food and much encouragement.
Our Philosophy of Giving
At SK&H, we approach community service and involvement in a variety of traditional and creative ways. We supply our time and energy to established organizations, such as nonprofit or educational institutions. Other community involvement initiatives are self-directed, such as creating educational programs and special intern opportunities for specific communities. While the time and energy of our individual attorneys and staff is of paramount importance, as a successful business we also understand the impact that monetary support can make. Whether through direct donations to charitable organizations and schools or to the renovation of a house to maintain the aesthetic and historical integrity of an area, we know how much dollars can do. We take pride in ownership of our community and enjoy how our extra involvement builds stronger bonds between both our firm’s and our individual attorney and staff’s connections with the community.
We believe that for everything we get from our community we must give back three times over.
SK&H fosters a culture of community involvement. Holding this as a commitment, not simply a concept, has resulted in our involvement in many rewarding opportunities. Our firm’s goal is to act as enabler in the community augmenting our own personal growth by fostering growth in our community. Whether through our time or through our dollars, SK&H understands the value the extra involvement gives to our community.
