Miami, FL – On January 12, as part of the Bilzin Sumberg Cares community involvement initiative, members of the law firm Bilzin Sumberg spent the day helping to make Norwood Elementary school a brighter place for its students to learn and grow. More than 100 Bilzin Sumberg volunteers, comprised of attorneys, staff, and their families, painted murals, planted a butterfly garden and enhanced the landscape of the school grounds in Miami Gardens.
Bilzin Sumberg Cares, the firm's community involvement program, provides the Bilzin Sumberg community with volunteer opportunities to work together to benefit charitable organizations in the South Florida community. Now in its fifth year, Bilzin Sumberg Cares has partnered with organizations including Voices for Children Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, United Way of Miami-Dade, the Miami-Dade Special Olympics, and numerous other non-profit organizations.
"This project underscores our commitment to shaping more than just the skyline of this community," said Marshall Pasternack, Corporate & Tax partner and Chair of Bilzin Sumberg Cares. "It was a pleasure to help improve the learning environment for the children at Norwood Elementary school, and in keeping with our firm's philosophy that caring is a year-round enterprise, we will continue our efforts to assist them with additional projects. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, 'Life's most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?' We at Bilzin Sumberg, feel good about what we are doing for others."
Bilzin Sumberg also presented Norwood Elementary school principal Kevin N. Williams with a donation to purchase new smart boards for the school.
