Davis & Gilbert Volunteers in Bergenfield for a Day of Service



RIVER EDGE, NJ, July 29, 2016 –Attorneys and summer associates from the law firm Davis & Gilbert LLP left their legal disputes and transactions behind for the day and volunteered their time to a team build at Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County’s Bergenfield job site. Davis & Gilbert is a full service law firm and is known for its expertise in the marketing and communications industry. With a culture of helping clients, it came as no surprise that the firm organized a Day of Service for its attorneys and summer associates to donate their time and resources and give back to the community.

The team of 12 volunteers stained siding for the exterior of the Bergenfield home, stained two picnic tables, and built a third picnic table, which our volunteers use to enjoy lunch onsite.  

The 1,900-square-foot, three-bedroom home will include the latest environmental and energy-efficiency standards to provide the future homeowners, Carlos and Geovana Pimentel, with utility cost-saving opportunities.

“We are grateful that Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County has provided us the opportunity to assist in its important mission through a day of meaningful and fun teamwork,” said Neal H. Klausner, co-chair of Davis & Gilbert’s litigation practice.

“Davis & Gilbert has been building with us for over four years, and we are thankful to have them back each year. This partnership would not be possible without the continued support of the leadership within the firm, especially that of partner Neal Klausner, who is a current member of Habitat Bergen’s Advisory Committee and a former Habitat Bergen board member,” said Angela King, Habitat Bergen’s Director of Volunteers.

About Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County
The goal of Habitat Bergen is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the face of the earth by working in partnership with people in need.  Using volunteer labor and donated funds and materials, Habitat Bergen builds or rehabilitates simple, decent houses and sells them to low-income families at cost, but with no interest added. Habitat Bergen is a people-to-people partnership, which joins all of us together regardless of race, nationality, religion, or socioeconomic status. That partnership begins with the homeowner families (partner families).  Habitat Bergen is not a giveaway program, but a joint venture in which those who benefit from the housing ministry are involved in the work at various levels. They help with the construction of their own home, as well as the houses of their neighbors.
