AAFCPAs enthusiastically participated in the 9th Annual CPA Day of Service on June 7th, 2019, organized in collaboration with the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants (MSCPA).
Community Service is a core value of AAFCPAs, and the essence of our culture. Forty-five of AAFCPAs’ team members received their regular day’s pay while volunteering as a benefit designed to expose team members to service and to encourage participation in hope that their positive experience of the joy and satisfaction that comes through service will make it habit-forming.
“Volunteer days provide AAFCPAs team members with the feeling of fulfillment that comes from helping neighbors in need, which is what makes volunteering such a rewarding experience,” said Kerrie Dupré, founder and leader of AAFCPAs’ Volunteer Committee.
Teams of employees volunteered at AAFCPAs’ nonprofit client organizations:
Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton, MA is an organization dedicated to providing shelter, care, humane treatment and loving homes for stray or unwanted companion animals. AAFCPAs’ team will assist with maintenance and cleanup of the outdoor pens and wooded trails, and share our experiences with our networks to raise awareness of the ways Baypath is working to improve the lives of animals.
St. Francis House is the largest day shelter in Massachusetts. They are located in the heart of downtown Boston, and serve an average of 500 poor and homeless men and women a day, 365 days a year. AAFCPAs’ teams will assist in meal preparation and distributing clothing to guests.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 who live in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive… at home, at school, and at play. AAFCPAs’ teams will volunteer in the Gifting Factory, helping to quality-check, sort, and package donations for distribution to the children served.
“The AAFCPAs’ motto: “great minds | great hearts” aptly describes our talented and compassionate team of employees, who are facilitators of AAFCPAs’ 10% Back to Nonprofits program,” said David McManus, Co-Managing Partner at AAFCPAs. “We relish the opportunity to dive in and get our hands dirty!”
