It was such a pleasure this past Tuesday to join the UAB Benevolent Fund and our partners at Habitat for Humanity in presenting the keys to this new home to a wonderful family, Monique Dixon and her children Donovan, Briana and Trenton. In recognition of the 25th Anniversary of The Americans with Disabilities Act, UAB employees and students wanted to partner with Habitat to build an accessible home for a deserving family.

This occasion truly “brought home” the impact of UAB employees giving through the Benevolent Fund and our commitment to changing our world through service. About 550 volunteers—many of whom are UAB employees and students who understand the importance of giving back—worked together over the course of the construction project. My sincere thanks to everyone involved in making this day a reality. We were excited to join the Dixons on this very special day as we came together to celebrate the good work of building a home and building our community.
