Volunteer Program is Part of Liberty's "Bill Rouse Day of Caring"-A Day to Honor the Memory of Company Founder
BOCA RATON - June 23, 2008 - Liberty Property Trust (NYSE:LRY), the real estate investment trust that owns and manages nearly two million square feet of office and industrial properties in South Florida, today announced that its 16 member Boca team spent Friday (June 20) working together to build on a company tradition of volunteering in the local community.
The team of commercial real estate professionals, for the second consecutive year, donated their time and talent to help the Seafarers House located in Port Everglades, Florida.
For a better part of the day, the Liberty team helped to upgrade the landscaping on the grounds at the Seafarers House facility. In addition the team pressure washed the deck and driveway, painted the deck and railing, helped to secure the exterior awning, thoroughly cleaned the lounge and common area, and cleaned the foundation's fleet of vans.
