AAFCPAs proudly participated in the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants’ (MSCPA’s) 7th Annual Day of Service on June 15th. Two teams of AAFCPAs’ staff volunteered with AAFCPAs’ client Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Angell Animal Medical Center (MSPCA-Angell) at the organization’s Nevins Farm location, and with Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester Chapter (HFH MWGW) as an Operation Playhouse sponsor.
At Operation Playhouse, AAFCPAs employees honored a local veteran’s family at the company’s Westborough office. Under the supervision of HFW MWGW, the team designed, built and decorated a military-themed playhouse for Kaelyn (9) and Aubrey (6), whose dad proudly serves in the Marines. The firm also donated $2,500, covering the costs of material and staff support, and to further Habitat’s mission of building homes, communities and hope.
“Volunteer experiences allow us to see the world through different eyes,” said Kerrie Gondola, founder and leader of AAFCPAs’ Volunteer Committee. “On this day, we got a glimpse into Kaelyn and Aubrey’s eyes as we unveiled their custom made, military-themed playhouse. Further, we are proud to honor their father Jon for his service.”
At Nevins Farm, AAFCPAs volunteers mucked stalls & barn cages, and helped Nevins’ staff relocate items into the Farm’s newly renovated loft space.
“Working manual labor on a farm today with 15 colleagues from AAFCPAs was an incredibly rewarding and memorable experience,” said Matthew Boyle, partner at AAFCPAs. “In addition to the welcome change of pace and scenery, were the MSPCA staff and volunteers who inspired us with their enthusiastic love of all animals, nature, and life.”
“We provide all of our employees with one paid day of service per year so they may feel empowered to make community service a priority in their life,” said David McManus, co-managing partner at AAFCPAs. “The AAFCPAs’ motto: “Great Minds | Great Hearts,” reflects our 40+ year legacy of genuine care for our community enriching others with our work in a way that ensures our lives are making a positive difference in the world.”
AAFCPAs celebrates the many nonprofits that enrich our lives by committing to donate 10% of our net income annually back to nonprofits. To learn more about AAFCPAs 10% Back to Nonprofits program click here.
