The Burrell Family has been through a lot together. While living in CASA's transitional housing units, the Burrell's misfortunes turned around when they qualified for a Habitat for Humanity home. Aneika Burrell successfully achieved her Habitat sweat equity hours all while living in a shelter, working two jobs and caring for and supporting her family.
All her hard work paid off, because on June 18, Aneika Burrell and her family received their house key from Bill Van Law, the president of Raymond James Investment Advisors Division.
This dedication marks the 10th home for Raymond James, bringing their total donations to $490,243. Raymond James employees volunteered 442 volunteer hours. This converts to almost $6,000 in cash savings on this home alone.
Back in 1962, Bob James founded Raymond James on the principle that putting others first - from our clients to our neighbors - was the right thing to do. His deep commitment to doing what's right remains a core part of who Raymond James is as a company. Raymond James is proud to continue his legacy by investing our time, money and talents into the communities we serve. It's so much more than tradition; it's our way of thanking those who've supported us from the start.
Special thanks to Raymond James for sponsoring this home. And many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped us build this home!
