We recently had the opportunity to see these words in action on Martin Luther King Jr Day when the Orlando Magic partnered with us on a beautification project at Maxwell Terrace Apartments.
“Community partners play an integral part in making a lasting impact on those we serve,” said Babette Allen, CEO of Pathlight HOME. “We’re incredibly grateful to the Orlando Magic for their commitment to taking action and showing what good can be done when we come together to support our community.”
Following Hurricane Ian, more than 90 apartment units were flooded at Maxwell Terrace. To help with the restoration and clean up of the community, more than 20 Orlando Magic team members volunteered to help paint, garden and clean up the community.
“The Orlando Magic are honored to join Pathlight HOME to recognize and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through service to our community,” said Magic Executive Vice President of Marketing and Social Responsibility Shelly Wilkes. “Working to help Pathlight HOME beautify their neighborhood is part of the fabric of our organization and helps us achieve our mission to be World Champions both on and off the court. We are thrilled to join them today in lifting up our neighbors and providing them with a place they can feel pride in.”
