Bone McAllester Norton and Renasant Bank
have teamed up on a weekend build with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville
in the Hallmark neighborhood in south Nashville. Construction on the home is slated to begin mid-April, and the two teams will work together on installation of siding and insulation, caulking of plates and panel joins and overall cleaning on Saturday, April 18, 2015. The home is for the Ongo family, who moved here from Ethiopia in 2009, and is seeking a quality, affordable home in a safe neighborhood for their two children.
Renasant Bank is one of Bonelaw’s longtime and respected clients.
“Our firm and all of our attorneys and staff members take great pride in using their passions to participate in activities that promote the betterment of our community,” said Sam J. McAllester III
, vice president and member of Bone McAllester Norton who also serves on the advisory board and finance committee for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville. “We are excited to partner with our friends at Renasant Bank once again to provide not just a quality, affordable home but a better life of hope and opportunity to a deserving family in our community.”
Bone McAllester Norton supports a wide range of community programs and activities and strives to make our culture synonymous with good works for clients and the community. Giving back has always been a key part of what the firm does, so joining together with Habitat to provide a life-changing opportunity for others was something that made perfect sense, McAllester noted.
At the heart of Renasant’s mission is the desire to impact positively the communities that it serves. Larry Lovelace, Executive Vice President at Renasant Bank, has prior experience in volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and knew that it would be a good fit for Renasant.
“Renasant Bank is a community lender, and we continuously strive to serve the needs of organizations working for the betterment of our community,” said Lovelace. “Habitat is a leader in providing affordable and quality housing to our community. In conjunction with Bone McAllester Norton, a longtime business partner of Renasant Bank, we are proud to join Habitat’s efforts to build a stronger community.”
