For Immediate Release
Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn, P.A. has made an ongoing commitment to the Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. The certified public accounting and business consulting firm sends volunteers several times a year to demolish, drill, hammer and paint on construction sites. All levels of staff are encouraged to participate in volunteer days. Since 2008, over 26 staff members have worked on six Habitat houses throughout Baltimore city. The firm will complete their fifth volunteer day in September.
“We decided to make a long-term commitment to Habitat for Humanity in order to make a connection to the organization’s mission and the people it serves,” says Partner Barry Bondroff. “We wanted to be a part of the ongoing progress that Habitat makes in Baltimore, not just show up for one day and never return.”
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that works with families in need to provide simple, decent and affordable homes. Houses are sold to qualifying homebuyers at no profit. Volunteers work alongside homebuyers, who must complete “sweat equity” hours. The Chesapeake affiliate works on homes in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County.
Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn, P.A. has a strong history of donating time and resources to not-for-profit organizations. In addition to their work with Habitat for Humanity, over the past year GSG staff has participated in a Bowl-A-Thon benefiting Junior Achievement, BVU’s Elf Night, and the 2010 Mud Volleyball Tournament benefiting the Community Free Clinic in Hagerstown, MD. Many of the firm’s partners, principals and senior managers also sit on not-for-profit boards.
