Two weeks before the anniversary of Hurricane Michael, a ray of light was seen. FJA Research & Education Foundation donated more than $20,000 at the Bay Count Court House. The proceeds were presented to Habitat for Humanity ReStore of Bay County Florida, and Rebild Bay County Inc.
FJA members and attorneys Larry Perry, Kelly Roberson, and Waylon Thompson were on hand in the courthouse to present the donation on behalf of FJA-Research and Education Foundation to 14th Circuit Judge Chris Patterson, Lance Rettig Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity, and Donna Pilson USAF(R) representative for Rebuild Bay County Inc.
“Hopefully in the future, we have more contributions, as other charitable organizations reach out to our firm,” Perry said.
“This money from the Florida Justice Associaton will help us in what we’re doing. We’re doing both repairs for people impacted by the hurricane and we’re building new homes as well. To give you an idea, at least two full repairs can be done with this amount,” Rettig said.
Please visit these organizations on Facebook to learn more about what they do to help the citizens of Florida with disaster relief.
The money came from multiple attorneys who are part of the Florida Justice Association.
