A Regular Day at the Office?

Posted By Administration, September 19, 2018
The team at Augustine Bater Binks LLP (ABB) usually commutes into the city and takes up residence at their offices on Laurier Ave where the usual lawyerly business of emails, meetings, telephone calls, preparing for court and court appearances fill the day.

But not on September 6th, when the commute took a twist and the team convened at the Habitat for Humanity build site in Orleans for Habitat Build Day which consisted of cutting holes in the floors for the heat vents, finishing concrete forming for front stairs, working on Tyvek waterproofing, and cutting interior framing in doorways to help build a home at Habitat’s Leacross Landing development.

This year, one of the homes in Leacross Landing is being sponsored by the Ottawa Carleton Legal community. A Law Build Committee, of which Craig Bater of ABB is a member, has been working all year to raise $100,000 to support the build. The Habitat Build Days play a key role in our overall fundraising efforts. So far, ABB, Nelligans, Kelly Santini, and Labarge Weinstein have agreed to support the build in this fashion.

“We did a Habitat Build Day last year and everyone found it to be a really rewarding experience, so we were pleased to be able do it again as a way of supporting Law Build,” said Craig Bater of ABB.
It’s all connected to a common purpose: Building a stronger community through affordable homeownership. Habitat homes are built with donated labour, resources and funds before being sold to a family through a geared-to-income, interest-free mortgage. The family contributes volunteer hours towards their home’s construction.

The Law Build Committee is still looking for law firm teams that would like to participate in this activity and make a tangible impact on the community with their philanthropic efforts. Help out on the build site by raising a wall or laying a floor, and meet a Habitat family in the process. But watch out – you could get hooked on a fun way to help build our community – and find yourself coming back again and again!

Law firms can also support Law Build by participating at Habitats’ popular Steel Toes and Stilettos Gala on November 3rd Proceeds from their participation will go to the Law Build fund.

“Both individuals and corporations have been tremendously supportive of what we’re doing in the community,” says Alexis Ashworth Habitat GO’s CEO. “Habitat for Humanity provides a unique opportunity for businesses to engage their team members in a meaningful experience that offers visible and tangible results. There’s nothing quite like seeing walls go up and knowing that your team is helping a family in need build their safe and affordable home”
