[dropcap]F[/dropcap]owler White Burnett attorneys and staff joined together to help build homes for families as part of the 2015 Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami Blitz Build on Feb.28.
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 Gil O. Acevedo; Stephanie M. Chaissan; Elena M. Cobo; Jonathan H. Dunleavy; Ydalia Garcia; Stephen R. Gross; Robert D. McDougal IV; Peter Joseph Melaragno; Barbara R. Schabert; Carla Ventrano; and Kevin P. Yombor. They completed various landscaping-related tasks as part of their participation in the event, which has become an integral part of the firm’s Fowler White Burnett Connects Community Initiative Program.
“Our participation in this year’s Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build was exceptionally rewarding,” says Christopher E. Knight, Managing Shareholder of Fowler White Burnett. “We could see how our efforts, along with those of others, are making a real difference in our community by helping to provide the essentials to those who need them the most.”
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 Fowler White Burnett 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.
