MIAMI – March 21, 2019 – Demonstrating their continued commitment to community involvement, the Miami and Doral offices of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, P.A. held their 7th Annual GT Cares event.
From March 2-9, attorneys and business staff donated their time, monetary contributions, and supplies to benefit local charitable organizations Zoo Miami Foundation, Chapman Partnership, Children’s Home Society, and Habitat for Humanity.
Each Greenberg Traurig volunteer team was led by a “GT Hero” – an attorney who serves as a board member for the respective nonprofit sponsor organization.
“Supporting worthy charitable organizations that make a real difference in the lives of many South Florida residents has been both a pleasure and a priority for Greenberg Traurig since our founding 52 years ago,” said Miami office Co-Managing Shareholders Jaret L. Davis and Yosbel A. Ibarra in a joint statement. “We remain committed to carrying on the Greenberg Traurig tradition of giving back to the communities where we live and work.”
