Lawyers support community, honor fallen co-worker

On Sept. 11, attorneys from the Dallas office of Holland & Knight volunteered to complete several service projects at the Texas Fire Museum.

Though they spent the day painting, landscaping, and cleaning, their work was not just a way to give back to the community—it was also a chance to pay tribute to Glenn Winuk, a New York-based partner and volunteer EMT who was killed during the collapse of the World Trade Center.

Through the nonprofit MyGoodDeed, Winuk’s brother co-founded the annual event, which fosters service by improving the lives of others, as a way of honoring both Winuk and all who perished in the attacks. In 2009, Congress officially designated the date as a National Day of Service and Remembrance under bipartisan federal law.
