is to assist homeless people improve their life situation by providing temporary and long-term housing and supportive services. Ted Augustinos, a partner in the firm's Insurance and Reinsurance Department, has been a member of the board of directors of South Park Inn for over 20 years.
The Edwards Wildman team joined volunteers from OneBeacon, Allied World, and Travelers, among other local insurance companies, spending the day cleaning and painting the shelter's main living quarters, four different bathrooms, and various stairwells; stripping and re-waxing floors; and dusting and cleaning baseboard radiators and piping.
