AAFCPAs team members joined women from across the country in Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week 2016, volunteering at a build site in Auburn, MA to assist the Habitat team on a new affordable housing project.
Partnering with Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester (HFH MWGW), AAFCPAs’ Tracy Howell, Lauren Duplin, Kristen Dubois, Aileen Wilson, and Allison Cree worked hands-on to help provide a deserving woman and her family with a safe and stable home. AAFCPAs wholeheartedly shares Habitat’s passion for creating opportunities where people of diverse incomes and backgrounds may access housing that is affordable, and so we are proud of our team members who volunteered their time to support such a great and worthy cause.
This is just one example of how AAFCPAs celebrates the many nonprofits that enrich our lives. We commit to donate 10% of our net income annually back to nonprofits. In addition to donations of cash and services, AAFCPAs provides all of our employees with one paid day of service per year. All are encouraged to contribute on an individual level too. Partners and many contribute their financial expertise on Boards of all sizes as a way of living our core value of community service. For example, AAFCPAs Partner, Charlie Webb serves on the Board of Directors of HFH MWGW.
About Habitat for Humanity-Metro West / Greater Worcester
HFH MWGW was founded in 1985 by local activists who identified the need for affordable housing opportunities in the Greater Worcester area and were committed to engaging groups of community stakeholders in solving the affordable housing problem. Their homes are built from the ground up primarily using volunteer labor and donations from the community. These homes are then sold to hard working families who are living between 30 and 60% of the area median income.
