Run/Walk for Home

August 23, 2011

Giving back to the community where they live and work is one of the foundations of Silver & Archibald.  Since 2000, the firm has sponsored the Run/Walk for Home, a 5K promoting and supporting Habitat for Humanity and the Athens Area Homeless Shelter.  The money provided to these charities through the sponsorship changes lives, said Habitat Executive Director Spencer Frye.

“The funds donated by Silver & Archibald are extremely valuable and very hard to come by,” Frye explained.  “Programs like EHARP provide handicap access ramps in homes of those in need.  When government funds cannot cover all of the cost, the support from Silver & Archibald closes the gap.  In this program alone, the money has allowed us to outfit 20 homes per year.”

ReNew Athens is another powerful initiative made possible because of the support that comes from Silver & Archibald.  The ReNew Athens Initiative takes existing structures and renovates them with volunteer labor, providing a homeownership opportunity for families who earn close to minimum wage.  In addition, a unique partnership with the University of Georgia-led Aspire Clinic offers financial and relationship counseling to the residents, adding one more layer of support as they take the next step toward independence.

These solutions to today’s economic and societal difficulties are possible because of Habitat for Humanity’s creative Board of Directors.  Art Archibald is a member of the Board, and his ideas are welcomed and trusted because of his career and experience in the community.

“Art is a tremendous asset to our Board of Directors,” Frye said.  “His knowledge of law and experience in the community really shape how we are governed and led.   He is an outside-the-box thinker.”

The law firm of Silver & Archibald understands their clients’ needs, and supports and invests in their local community.
