Adams and Reese Houston office attorneys and staff volunteered on Saturday, March 14, at Longfellow Elementary School, as they planted 12 Live Oak and Mexican White Oak trees on the campus as part of a Trees for Houston project. The volunteers of Trees for Houston coordinated the planting to help replenish trees on the school grounds, and some of the students and their families joined in the effort.
Adams and Reese participants included Daryl Dursum, Dana Gambino, Margaret Zoch, Becky Martinez, Tara Rollin and Juliana Gaige. Barry Ward, Executive Director of Trees for Houston, thanked Adams and Reese employees for volunteering their time and estimated that all volunteers helped save the organization over six figures a year in labor costs.
The project was part of the Adams and Reese HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support) community service and philanthropic program, which for 26 years has donated time and financial resources to more than 200 organizations throughout the law firm’s regional footprint.
