Our Commitment to Community
Our Short Pump attorneys and staff proudly demonstrate commitment to our community through continued patronage of programs and organizations that educate and enrich the lives of those we serve.
The Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes award has recognized Virginians who are responsible for generating positive change in the community or in the lives of others. These awards have been presented annually since 2010. We’ve honored more than 450 heroes since this program’s inception.
Since 1991, we’ve been privileged to award a scholarship to students who embody the spirit, drive, and ideals of our firm’s founder, George E. Allen. Fifteen awards are presented each year.
Each New Year’s Eve, Allen & Allen partners with local taxi companies to reduce the number of intoxicated drivers on Short Pump area roads with the Sober Ride Home program. The program provides free rides home for revelers between 11:00 PM and 3:00 AM.
FeedMore offers comprehensive hunger programs that help provide food to the Short Pump area's most vulnerable residents: children, families, and seniors. Allen & Allen supports the mission of FeedMore with financial contributions and yearly participation in Legal Food Frenzy, a competitive food drive organized by Virginia law firms.
Virginia Teacher of the Year
The Virginia Teacher of the Year award honors an educator who represents the best in teaching in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation. Allen & Allen presents a cash award to VATOY recipients annually to support their efforts in the classroom.
Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
The Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (VAHCC) is an organization dedicated to the success and growth of Hispanic businesses in Virginia. Allen & Allen sponsors the VAHCC’s annual ¿Qué Pasa? Festival, the VAHCC Business Conference, a business mixer, and the Baile de Máscaras Gala.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD)
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has been striving to raise awareness of the dangers of drunk and drugged driving since their inception in 1980. Allen & Allen supports the mission of this organization by sponsoring the MADD Annual Law Enforcement Awards and the Richmond Walk Like MADD® 5k. Funds raised from the event help to further MADD’s lifesaving mission and the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® which calls for high-visibility law enforcement, ignition interlocks or “in-car breathalyzers” for all convicted drunk drivers, and support for the development of advanced technology to turn cars into the cure for drunk driving.
