The New Jersey Young CPAs, a membership segment of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA), collected more than 2,800 pounds of food during its annual September to November food drive to benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
Also, 38 Young CPAs spent two days in November volunteering their time at the FoodBank’s facility, placing pasta into individual family-sized bags.
“It's often easy to take for granted the good fortune in our lives,” says Melissa Soranno, CPA. “Volunteering at the Community FoodBank of NJ gave me the opportunity to share some good fortune with, and help fill a basic need for, members of the community who need it most.”
The NJSCPA thanks the Society members, chapters and committees that gave so generously to help those in need, as well as the 15 accounting firms across New Jersey that acted as collection points for food donations.
