(PRWEB) June 01, 2011
On Friday, May 20, 2011, 42 staff members from the Boston accounting firm of Feeley & Driscoll, P.C. volunteered their time to the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity, marking the 12th consecutive year that Feeley & Driscoll has partnered with the organization. The Feeley & Driscoll team had the privilege of working at the former St. Patrick Parish Convent in Lawrence, MA. Erected in the early 20th century, the convent once was home to over 30 nuns serving in local parochial schools and hospitals. Habitat for Humanity plans to convert the 16,000 square foot structure into ten condos over the next several years. The houses within this complex are being constructed to uphold Energy Star standards, which means each house will be 15-30 percent more energy efficient than a traditionally built home.
Feeley & Driscoll and its staff take an active role in the greater Boston community. In addition to Habitat, the Firm participates annually in events benefiting a myriad of organizations, including: the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge; the Patriot’s Charitable Foundation; the Jimmy Fund – Dana Farber Cancer Institute; the Women’s Lunch Place; Toys for Tots; and fundraising for the victims of the Japan/Pacific Tsunami.
