Taylor Porter’s newly launched BUILD Community Outreach Program got underway recently with a volunteer day for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge.

BUILD stands for building unity, inclusion and legal diversity. Taylor Porter’s Diversity Committee implemented the program with a goal of further bridging and supporting the firm’s diversity efforts in combination with its traditional community outreach and volunteer work.

Attorneys and family members got to work on a pre-build at 1025 North Acadian W. Lot No. 75. The pre-build consists of building the components that will go into the walls that will be raised the first day of the build, such as headers for windows and doors, as well as the frames for both, according to a news release.

Taylor Porter volunteers included Barrye Miyagi with husband Hiko and daughter Mia; Vicki Crochet with husband Charlie and daughter Kate Cusimano; and Mike Walsh, Pat Seiter, Dick Easterling, Blue Loupe and Ne’Shira Millender.

Taylor Porter partner Andrée Cullens is a family selection committee member for Habitat for Humanity.

The firm’s spring BUILD project will be an event for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Baton Rouge.
