Liberty Property Trust Employees Work with Children at the Florence Fuller Child Development Center on the 12th Annual Bill Rouse Day of Carin

Boca Raton, FL – June 22, 2015 – On Liberty Property Trust’s annual national day of service in honor of its founder, Willard “Bill” G. Rouse III, the company’s South Florida office came together in support of the Florence Fuller Child Development Center, a non-profit organization that provides children with a pathway out of poverty, inspiring them to make local and global differences through the use of their education.


“The Florence Fuller Child Development Center is dedicated to preparing children for a lifetime commitment to learning, while empowering their families in our local communities to build a brighter future,” said Andy Petry, vice president and city manager for Liberty’s South Florida region. “We applaud the organization and hope that our participation might help to encourage other companies and individuals to support the Florence Fuller Child Development Center in any way they can.”


Liberty employees rolled up their sleeves to prepare Literacy Kits for children at the Center. The kits included three books (Click Clack Moo Cow, Lilly’s Purple Purse and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom) and art/school supplies. The team also made a donation to cover the costs of the materials.


For more than a decade, Liberty Property Trust employees have honored the memory of company founder Willard “Bill” G. Rouse III with a national day of community service.  It is traditionally observed on the Friday closest to his birthday, June 19, and celebrated by over 400 employees in the company’s more than 20 offices in the US and UK.
