On MLK Day, We Helped Habitat Open The Doors To Families
In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s seldom that we get to see the excitement and joy of a family in need who can finally call a place their home. In a special holiday celebration, we were able to witness not one, not two, but five families have their lives changed.
This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, BBI stood in Fort Lauderdale watching the Dillard High School Drumline perform a special MLK Day tribute. Burdette Beckmann, Inc. and the Robert Taylor Family were excited to see the finished home they sponsored and were delighted that the home would be dedicated today to Monique Pinock and the Taywan Parris family.
“Today, we’re celebrating the opening of five homes for five new families that’ll move in shortly, in the homes that we are providing from Habitat for Humanity Broward,” said Robert Taylor, chairman of Habitat for Humanity of Broward, to Channel 7 News. “It’s a great day. It’s Martin Luther King Day and all the more reason to celebrate.”
Natasha King, a Habitat recipient, said that she is grateful for one thing. “My kids are growing up to see such a community coming together as one, as a family,” she said. “It’s amazing, and now we can call these five homes family.”
Each family was given a basket with essentials to start their new home as well as a gold key and a Bible.
BBI is honored to have been able to affect a live positively and we’re committed to keeping that pillar of our business a strong priority.
