Gilbert LLP Participates in Housing Repair Project With Rebuilding Together DC • Alexandria

Gilbert Attorneys and Staff Get Their Hands Dirty to Help Neighborhood Family

Gilbert attorneys and staff made a hands-on contribution to their community today, working with the non-profit Rebuilding Together DC • Alexandria to help a family in Washington’s Eastern Market neighborhood with a range of home repair and improvement projects.

Rebuilding Together DC • Alexandria and its volunteers seek to help create healthy neighborhoods in the DC area by maintaining housing for low-income homeowners and enabling residents to live safely and independently in their homes.  The immediate goal—providing critical home repairs that eliminate health and safety hazards—was the focus of Gilbert’s efforts today.

Gilbert’s volunteers worked on needed repairs in the basement, bathroom, stairs, and fencing in addition to helping with backyard and storage cleanup.  Today was Gilbert’s second volunteer service day with the Rebuilding Together organization, and a dozen attorneys and staff participated.

A key tenet of Gilbert’s philosophy is to “give back,” including participation in and support of public interest organizations, community initiatives, and local educational and charitable activities.
