Foit-Albert is Proud Sponsor of Habitat for Humanity Hammer & Ales Event

Habitat Buffalo

Foit-Albert Associates was a proud Pint Sponsor of the Hammer & Ales virtual event hosted by Habitat for Humanity.

This was a year-long campaign through which Habitat Buffalo and the craft brew community raised enough money to build an entire house. The culmination was an open house titled The House Beer Built, which showcased the volunteers, families and Habitat Buffalo’s completed home.

Habitat Buffalo’s vision is to live in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. As a certified Disadvantaged and Minority-owned firm, Foit-Albert Associates seeks to promote diversity in all aspects of the word and takes great pride in the ability to pay it forward when possible. Foit-Albert thanks you, Habitat Buffalo, for hosting such a positive and successful event to benefit the community of Buffalo.

Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

 We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.
