National Rebuilding Day (formerly Christmas in April)
Organized and directed for the past six years by Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy partner Frank M. Pitre, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy staffers have dedicated a special Saturday in April to revitalizing the houses of low-income homeowners, particularly the elderly, who otherwise could not afford such work. As part of the nationwide program National Rebuilding Day, formerly Christmas in April, dozens of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy lawyers, secretaries and legal assistants give up a Saturday in April each year to participate in painting, repairing, rebuilding and landscaping the home of a deserving member of the community. "National Rebuilding Day is a special way for us to give back to our community, to fulfill a vital need in our community for limited income seniors and others," said Pitre. "And it is always a very rewarding experience."
