CPA Food Drive
Members donate more
than 1,000 pounds of food
By Kirsten Piechota, Managing Editor
E
ach year the CSCPA New and Young
Professionals Group
sponsors a charity
drive for a different organization. This year,
CPAs and new professionals hung signs in their
offices encouraging staff and clients to reach into
their cabinets or hit the local grocery store or ware-
house club to donate non-perishable food items on
behalf of the CPA profession.
The New and Young Professionals Group also mobi-
lized CSCPA's Campus Representatives (students
engaged to serve as a CSCPA presence on college
campuses around the state) to help get the word out.
The students placed signs and donation boxes in stu-
dent centers and business department buildings.
"Each year I continue to be impressed by the gener-
ous spirit of Connecticut's CPA community," said
CSCPA Student and New Professional Outreach
Specialist Alicia McCain, who coordinated the food
pickups "There were so many donations that I had
to make several trips to the distribution centers, with
my car completely packed each time!"
The food was distributed by Hockanum Valley Food
Pantry in Vernon, which serves residents of Vernon,
Tolland, and Ellington, and Foodshare in Hartford,
which distributes food daily to 300 community
kitchens, emergency shelters, food pantries, and
other anti-hunger programs.
If your firm or organization would like to be involved
in future CSCPA charitable drives, get in touch with
McCain at aliciam@cscpa.org or 860-258-0217.
You can also look for calls to action in future issues
