Fire Fighters Foundation of Houston Names Haynes and Boone “Everyday Heroes” Award Honoree
HOUSTON – Haynes and Boone, LLP has been named the 2010 recipient of the Fire Fighters Foundation of Houston Everyday Heroes Business Award in recognition of the firm’s ongoing support and service to the foundation.
“Haynes and Boone is honored to be able to give back to the brave men and women that protect our city,” said Haynes and Boone Lawyer Jeff Dinerstein, who will accept the award on the firm’s behalf. “It is great to see our involvement making a difference.”
Support from the firm has enabled the purchase of supplemental equipment and supplies. It also has funded job training that might not otherwise be obtainable through the foundation’s budget. In addition, Haynes and Boone donates its legal services.
Fire Fighters Foundation Board Member George Hittner expressed gratitude for the firm’s contributions. “Haynes and Boone, along with Mr. Dinerstein, have been instrumental in the success of the Fire Fighters Foundation of Houston, providing in-kind legal services along with office space for over five years,” he said.
Haynes and Boone will accept the award at the foundation’s annual Sept. 11 gala that pays tribute to the men and women of the Houston Fire Department. The Fire Fighters Foundation of Houston is the first foundation in Houston to provide non-governmental funding to Houston's fire fighters. It provides Houston's fire fighters with the necessary funding, tools, technology and equipment required to serve and protect the citizens of Houston.
