The Connecticut Society of CPAs (CTCPA) raised more than $7,500 in monetary donations plus hundreds of needed supplies at its first-ever Day of Giving social and collection drive to benefit Connecticut Foodshare and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
Held at the CTCPA office in Rocky Hill on Tuesday, November 30 (#GivingTuesday), CTCPA members made monetary donations and brought hundreds of most-requested food items including peanut butter, tuna, rice, beans, and more for Connecticut Foodshare. Donations for Connecticut Children’s included most-requested toys and games for patients and their siblings who visit the hospital.
The event was planned by the CTCPA New and Young Professionals Cabinet, which works to bring together young accounting and finance professionals for educational, social, and community service projects.
“I am always so impressed by the generosity of the CPA community,” said CTCPA Executive Director and CEO Bonnie Stewart. “Our members’ commitment to helping others is apparent by the overwhelming number of supplies and donations this event raised.”
With a membership of more than 6,000 in public practice, business and industry, government, and education, the CTCPA’s mission is to advocate on behalf of the accounting profession, foster a professional community, and provide high-quality professional development opportunities.
