ROSELAND, N.J. – Organized by the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA), the first annual NJ CPA Month of Service took place during May 2014. This volunteer service represented the CPA profession's ongoing commitment to serving the communities where its professionals live and work.
Whether it was a whole day or just a few hours, dozens of CPAs and firms – from Sussex County to Cape May County – cleaned up their communities, donated blood, rode bicycles, visited senior centers and more to benefit organizations such as the NJ Metro Chapter of the MS Society, Community Food Bank of NJ, Junior Achievement and others.
"Our firm really embraces the philosophy of ‘give back’ and supports its staff in their philanthropic endeavors. So we were happy to participate in the NJ CPA Month of Service," said WithumSmith+Brown’s Director of Marketing & Practice Growth Rhonda Maraziti. "Withum teams walked in support of the March of Dimes and ran the Paulette Steps for Cancer Awareness, and we coordinated care packages for U.S. Marines."
