On Nov. 22, Milton-based Orkin & Associates, LLC, joined the Habitat for Humanity North Central Georgia to begin constructing the future home of the Lyons, one of recipients of a Habitat town home located in Centennial Village in Milton. Orkin & Associates, LLC, a third-generation, family-owned real estate investment company and The William B. Orkin Foundation Inc., the Orkin family's charitable foundation, donated labor and funding to help provide a home for this deserving local family. Staff and board members of Orkin & Associates, including Orkin & Associates' CEO Adam Orkin, worked alongside the Lyons family as well as other sponsors and donors during the First Nail Ceremony to construct the Lyons' new Centennial Village town home. "It is very rewarding for the company as a whole to participate in such a wonderful and worthwhile experience," said Orkin. On Jan. 31, Orkin & Associates staff members will participate once more in an additional phase of this Habitat built for the Lyons family.
