Block Hawley Commercial Real Estate, LLC (an affiliate of Block Real Estate Services) is one of the largest industrial real estate firms in the St. Louis area. Something that all Block Hawley professionals have in common is the focus on making a difference locally, whether it be through business or volunteering. Recently, Pat Parish, Block Hawley’s office manager, brought a cause to the company that was close to home for her. Ms. Parrish and her family are directly affected by epilepsy. Pat’s 3 year old granddaughter, Edy Sumner, struggled with seizures ever since she was 4 months old and lost her battle in 2004. One of the ways that the Parrish/Sumner family and their friends continue to show their love for Edy is by being involved with the Epilepsy Foundation.

In an effort to support Pat and her family and to help make a difference in the lives of the 200,000 people currently living with epilepsy in Missouri and Kansas, Block Hawley rallied behind this cause to also donate to the foundation in Edy’s name.

Regardless of the cause or motivation, being involved in the community not only makes a difference for the people receiving the contributions, but on the giver as well. One can develop new ideas and skills, network with a new group of people, and strengthen existing relationships, while supporting meaningful organizations. What is your company passionate about?
