From Corporate Office Properties Trust:
Senator Barbara Mikulski will survey the progress of a duplex being built for local families in need, as part of her Harford County tour on Tuesday, October 19th. Material and labor for the homes are being donated by Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT) and several contractors, and COPT is donating the time of nearly 100 COPT employees to help complete the job. Volunteers began building the two homes on Monday, October 4th, and expect to finish on Friday, October 22nd.
Randall M. Griffin, CEO of COPT, will be present for two events as the “Blitz Build” progresses. Four days before completion, he will welcome Senator Mikulski and give her a tour of the homes as the project enters its final stretch. He will then be on hand for a dedication ceremony, as keys to the homes are presented to the two Habitat families on the last day of the build.
“Helping two deserving families in Harford County is something we’re proud to do,” Griffin said. “It made sense for us to lend our resources and the talents of our employees to Habitat for Humanity, so we could make these two homes a reality.”
