I have taken the decision to postpone the Women’s Suit Drive until the Fall. I recently launched the drive in what would have been its second year.
Unfortunately, with everything that’s going on with COVID-19 it’s just not an option right now. Acumen Law’s offices will not be scheduling any in person appointments at its offices for the time being.
It’s important that we all heed the directions of public health officials as we try to delay and limit the spread of the virus. Consequently, Acumen will suspend all pickups and drop-offs of donations.
Please note, the Women’s Suit Drive is on hold, not cancelled. If it’s safe to do so, we will resume the drive in the Fall. It’s a cause that’s close to my heart and I had really been looking forward to providing UBC law graduates with the suits but safety comes first.
If you would still like to donate a new or gently used women’s suit, of any shape, size, colour or style, you can do so via mail to Acumen Law’s Vancouver or Richmond locations.
You can also send cash donations or clothing store gift cards and I am happy to take any donations which will go directly to buying clothing for UBC law students. You can reach me firstname.lastname@example.org.
A further announcement will be made after summer about when the Women’s Suit Drive will resume. Until then, stay safe.
