Fowler White Burnett attorneys joined together to help build a home for a family in the Habitat Landings Community of South Miami Heights as part of the 2014 Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami Blitz Build on February 8, 2014.
The Blitz Build is an accelerated construction event in which more than 1,500 volunteers work together to complete the building of 10 homes within two weeks to provide the deserving, low-income partner families of Habitat for Humanity with residences.
Fowler White Burnett’s Habitat team members included James N. Hurley; Leticia Vega; Marta R. Acosta; Gil O. Acevedo; Alyssa Razook-Wan; J. Michael Pennekamp; George M. Koonce; Stephen R. Gross; Howard E. Fox; Richard P. Morris; Helenemarie M. Blake; Chris Leger; and Robert D. McDougal IV. They completed various home construction-related tasks as part of their participation in the event, which has become an integral part of the firm’s FWB Connects Community Initiative Program.
“Participating in this year’s Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience,” says J. Michael Pennekamp, a shareholder of Fowler White Burnett, PA. “Our efforts, along with those of others, contributed a very real and tangible benefit to our local community and was very gratifying.”
Committed to giving back to the South Florida Community, which Fowler White Burnett is grateful to have served for more than 70 years, the firm created the FWB Connects Community Service Initiative. The program provides a venue for Fowler White Burnett attorneys, staff and their families to join together in a variety of efforts to support the important work of many worthy organizations in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
