This holiday season, Pope McGlamry launched the Wishing Tree holiday program benefitting Atlanta-area victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. As part of the initiative, families staying or working with the International Women’s House (IWH) sent Christmas wish cards that were displayed on the firm’s Wishing Tree. Over the holiday season, Pope McGlamry attorneys and staff selected wishes from the tree to fulfill. IWH houses families with children ranging from newborns to teenagers, and with the help of the community, Pope McGlamry successfully granted the wishes of more than 45 women and children at IWH.
Pope McGlamry also extends thanks and appreciation to Malone Law for partnering with the firm to ensure that every Christmas wish came true. Pope McGlamry, encouraged by this support from the legal community and the initiative’s success, plans to continue the Wishing Tree program as an annual holiday event. The firm invites other Atlanta law firms to partner in the Wishing Tree program.
As the only domestic violence shelter in Georgia equipped to provide services uniquely tailored to various backgrounds and cultural needs, IWH has helped care for almost 3,000 refugees from 35 different countries. The Wishing Tree program provides an opportunity for the legal community here in Atlanta to share warmth and happiness with those at IWH who have faced considerable hardship and loss, many of whom spend their first holiday season in the United States at the shelter.
