Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP
The attorneys and staff of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings were so moved by the trail of destruction left by the 2011 tornado outbreak, we sought to have a part in healing our ravaged communities – a way to leave a lasting positive impact. So, we decided to focus our collective passion and manpower into a larger effort that would bring peace to a single unfortunate family.
As we shared in last year's holiday e-card, we chose to give one family something none of us could imagine being without – a home. This summer, we donated and built a Habitat for Humanity home for the Ford family. Our goal was that they be home for the holidays. We are pleased to have succeeded – and equally pleased to share this joyful story with you this holiday season!
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. That is our mission. Our vision is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the United States and throughout the world. We build quality, affordable housing and revitalize existing houses, encouraging family stability and promoting self-sufficiency, educational achievement, and responsible citizenship.
Working with the folks from Bradley Arant Boult Cummings to put the Ford family back in a home in time for the holidays is the very embodiment of what we're about. As far as we're concerned, there is no better way to wish people happy holidays and many happy new years!
