Holland & Knight Honors Fallen Partner on 10th Anniversary of 9/11 Through Community Service

The national law firm of Holland & Knight is giving back to the Jacksonville community as part of a firm-wide campaign to honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, including Glenn Winuk, one of the law firm’s partners.  As part of the nationwide Day of Service and Remembrance Initiative, attorneys and staff from the Jacksonville office will volunteer their time on September 10, 2011 with Community Connections in a “Paint & A Picnic” event. They will complete eight paint rehabilitation projects, ranging from painting a nursery, to rebuilding a sandbox, to preparing a bedroom with toiletries and sheets.

On September 11, 2001, volunteer firefighter and EMT, and partner at Holland & Knight’s New York office, Glenn Winuk, lost his life while trying to save victims in the World Trade Center. On the day of the attacks, Glenn helped evacuate his law offices, which were located a block from Ground Zero. He then raced into the WTC’s South Tower to participate in the rescue efforts. He died in the line of duty, along with many others, when the building collapsed. Ten years later, the firm is honoring its fallen partner by serving as a major sponsor – and the only law firm sponsor – of the nationwide 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance Initiative. The initiative is organized by MyGoodDeed, the non-profit founded by Glenn’s brother Jay.

Holland & Knight’s lawyers and staff across the country have also committed more than 2000 hours of service to a good cause, with each office sponsoring volunteer projects in partnership with local community and charitable organizations.
