Power of Story Telling


Sponsoring Stevens Elementary School  

Twyford Law Office is pleased to announce its dedication to Inland Northwest communities in the Magic of Storytelling campaign. Powered by ABC and Disney, we will present books to Title I schools, benefiting literacy programs across many counties. The children come first, and we’re pleased to offer the chance of change.

Adoption and Sponsorship

By offering books in 500-copy increments, Twyford Law Office will “adopt” these schools, sponsoring them while presenting the gift of fiction. By granting kids the opportunity to read, Twyford’s sponsorship will promote local literacy, education and a higher degree of social understanding. Magic of Storytelling is imbued by creativity. Inspiring stories, when presented to the community, can create the minds, hearts and innovation of tomorrow.

Disney and the Power of Storytelling

Disney has already donated millions of books to children in need, assisting them with reading, story creation and creativity. Great stories alter entire lives, bringing children to faraway lands, unheard-of journeys and bright futures. Together, Disney and ABC have parented Twyford Law Office—delivering numerous campaign activities while promoting storytelling in its purest form.

For 16 years, Disney and First Book have helped kids read, learn and succeed. Their partnership with ABC—spawning the Magic of Storytelling campaign—has reached communities in unprecedented ways. Eligible books purchased by consumers in Disney Store locations, or at other participating retail outlets during Disney Reads Day, in the past, resulted in direct donations up to one million books. The Magic of Storytelling campaign has expanded, reaching many communities, local providers and—of course—Twyford Law Office.

 Our Goal and Community

The Inland Northwest is deserving of creativity, and we’re proud to partner with local businesses, community groups and families to promote reading. Children will be sent home with books which may be ordinarily inaccessible. Twyford’s sponsorship makes this donation possible, as do its television spots between February and March.

By promoting the community responsible for our success, Twyford Law Office can inform it about childhood literacy. Today, literacy in children is an incredibly important topic. Twyford Law Office intends to benefit bright minds, bright futures and bright career paths. Reading is a vital cornerstone of childhood development, and our representation enables these healthy environments.

Our Promise to the Children

Twyford Law Office is well-known for simplifying the legal process, talking to clients at a human level. For this reason, much of our support is dedicated to empowering the community at large. We’re constantly fighting for your best interest, discussing services, educational options and future goals to fortify the community as a whole. We feel education should be embraced with open arms. Unfortunately, today’s children may be intimidated by reading—pushing away important education.

We’re making a promise to our schools, its children and its parents: Education can happen via the world of fiction. Every book provided through Disney and ABC’s parent program is geared towards the intellectual and emotional growth of your children. Twyford Law Office is a friend to education, inspiration and childhood development. We feel community involvement works best in partnership. By offering services hand-in-hand with local businesses, we can succeed in creating an environment—not a simple program.

Greater Spokane Chamber of Commerce Members



Member of the Greater Spokane Chamber of Commerce

The Twyford Law Office is proud to announce its membership in the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce.  Membership offers an opportunity for the firm to become more deeply involved in the community whose members it has represented for many years.

A Proud History and Proactive Goals

The City of Spokane and the surrounding Spokane Valley have a rich heritage.  From the Native American tribe known as the Spokanes comes the name Spokane, which means Children of the Sun.  At the time of its incorporation in 1881, the town took up just 1.56 square miles.  As of 2014, the city itself had grown to an area of 57.8 square miles and 212,052 residents.

For nearly a century, the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce has focused on serving the city and the surrounding region.  As the Spokane Valley area developed, business leaders realized there was a need for an organization that would represent area business interests.  On May 25, 1921, they founded the Chamber in Greenacres.

From the Chamber’s inception, its mission has been to serve business concerns, to improve the vitality of the community, and to fuel economic prosperity for the Greater Spokane Valley.  The Chamber believes the key to realizing its mission is building an agenda that is both inclusive and collaborative with the community.  Thanks to community participation, the BIG 5 project has identified five measurable goals to draw businesses and industries to the Spokane Valley:

  • Greater Outdoors promotes and protects the area’s outdoor vitality.
  • Greater Goods showcases the area as an emerging high-tech leader in manufacturing.
  • Greater Learning integrates education and business to form the future workforce.
  • Greater Cures fosters medical research from the conceptual stage to the cure.
  • Greater Vision builds an enterprising identity for the region.

The Chamber also has an active legislative program to support the BIG 5.  It includes six activities to enhance the competitiveness of the area’s business climate, plus community projects and educational initiatives.

A Valued Membership

Membership in the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce means a great deal to the Twyford Law Office.  It offers one more important endorsement to the firm’s already outstanding reputation and provides additional recognition of its unique expertise and devotion to the clients it represents.

Chamber membership offers the opportunity to reach goals for business growth by networking and collaborating with other local leaders.  Members enjoy sharing insights on business challenges common to many of them.  Membership is also an excellent way for the Twyford Law Office to get a pulse on public opinion and to reach out to the Spokane Valley community by becoming a Chamber sponsor.
