CPAs Fight for Hunger in Washington State

An CPA-related effort across the state of Washington will help fill the shelves of food banks from now until April 15.

Called "Operation Can Hunger," the Washington Society of CPAs is encouraging its chapter members to solicit non-perishable food items and cash from their clients while they are performing tax services.

The Society capitalized on this effort after realizing that food banks typically have fewer supplies after the first of the year due to dwindling contributions. The Washington Society has conducted Operation Can Hunger since 1990, when the number of firms contributing food at that time numbered 30.

Donations have continued to increase over the years, and this year's take is expected to amount to more than 750,000 pounds of food.
