Property Damage Attorneys, Florida Professional Law Group, PLLC
and the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters and its Community Affairs Committee Staged a Habitat for Humanity of Broward Home Build Day to “Pay It Forward” to a local community in need. FLPLG Attorneys, staff and public insurance adjusters volunteered their time to help build homes.
The organizer of the Habitat “Build Day” program was Marc Ben-Ezra, Managing Attorney for Florida Professional Law Group. Ben-Ezra said, “In our daily work we help homeowners with property damage recover money from their insurance companies so they can restore their homes. This is a great way to help a family to have a home. My law firms have participated in Habitat for Humanity building days for years. They are a great way to give back to the community and are consistent with our law firm’s mission. We frequently work together with public adjusters on these cases. They know a lot about construction and helping homeowners so this whole activity with the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters was a great fit. We discussed the partnership opportunity with FAPIA’s Managing Director, Nancy Dominguez, FAPIA Community Affairs Chair, Karen Schiffmiller and FAPIA President Mike Rump and they enthusiastically got onboard.
We thank Bill Feinberg, Habitat of Broward’s Chairman of the Board and President, Allied Kitchen & Bath for introducing Florida Professional Law Group to the Fort Lauderdale Chapter. We couldn’t be happier to have participated in this meaningful program.”
FAPIA’s President, Mike Rump kicked off the ceremony by saying, “We frequently contribute to our communities. This build day program offers a special avenue for public adjusters and our friends at Florida Professional Law Group to work together to show compassion to help those in need near where we live. We are proud to have public adjusters participate. They have come out from South Florida, Spring Hill, Tampa and from all over the state.”
Schiffmiller said, “We are happy to be here today. I can’t bear the thought of a family not having a home. FAPIA’s Community Affairs mission is to give back. We can all do something to help the families in our communities to have a place to live.”
Brandon James, Legislative Aide and Community Outreach Director for District 92 attended on behalf of Representative Gwendolyn Clarke Reed to show support for this initiative.
During the opening remarks, Robert W. Leider, Habitat for Humanity of Broward Board Member/ VP WSVN introduced the future homeowner, Jennifer O’Neal. Robert discussed Habitat Broward’s mission of providing a hand-up, the selection and education process families go.
Marc BenEzra of Florida Professional Law Group provided the Habitat Broward donation and presented the check with FAPIA to Habitat and Mr. Leider for the volunteer team building opportunity. It was a heartwarming experience to see the homeowner’s gratitude as she thanked the organizations for their efforts, led a prayer and later worked alongside volunteers on her future home. Jennifer, a 13-year Walgreen’s employee and her family have gone through a 2-year process to qualify, to learn about homeownership and to participate in the construction of their future home. They are incredibly grateful to Habitat of Broward and to the volunteers that came out to help with her home.
“Our members are do-gooders who thrive when they see the positive results that their efforts have on their local communities,” said FAPIA’s Managing Director, Nancy Dominguez.
