On Saturday, February 15, 2014, CSK Tampa helped make home ownership a reality for two deserving families in Pinellas County, Florida, by participating in the 2014 Blitz Build. During the Blitz Build, Habitat will build a home from start to finish in seven days, with over three hundred volunteers lending a hand. This year, two homes will be completed in just one week, in a neighborhood comprised solely of Habitat homes! The CSK Tampa team, headed by Elizabeth Tosh, included fifteen lawyers, including Zarra Elias, Saray Noda, Jennifer Lulgjuraj, Michelle Bartels, Nick LeRoy, Andrew Bickford, Ryan Rivas, Ben Deninger, Thomas Hodges, Justin Saar, Carlos Morales, Chris Donegan, Elizabeth Tosh, Steve Richardson, and managing partner of the Tampa office, Dan Shapiro. The CSK Tampa team focused on securing roof trusses, sheathing roofs, installing framed walls, and blocking the framing walls, to ready interior walls for drywall/other interior applications.
Habitat for Humanity requires prospective homeowners to put in “sweat equity” hours, up to 350 hours per homeowner, qualify and obtain a mortgage, and participate in at least fifteen classes focused on home ownership, to make certain that prospective owners are prepared for the future impacts of ownership. Habitat homes are built using donated land and materials along with volunteer labor, to help qualifying families afford safe and quality housing.
