What is the MSCPA Day of Service?

The Day of Service encourages MSCPA members to get involved in their community through volunteerism projects. Last year for our MSCPA Day of Service, we partnered with Cradles to Crayons - a nonprofit organization that hosts special industry days to bring together colleagues from similar industries to help serve children across the Commonwealth. They held a "CPA Industry Day" for our members to volunteer at the organization on June 15, 2017. This impactful volunteer day allowed industry leaders and their colleagues to network while sorting, sizing and packaging goods to be placed in KidPacks for the children Cradles to Crayons serves. It gives organizations who haven’t been to their Giving Factory before, a chance to volunteer, learn about the organization, and have fun while giving back!

How Does The MSCPA Day of Service Work?

Firms, companies and individuals are encouraged to volunteer for a community organization of their choice—whether committing to a whole day or just a few hours. Clean up the local park, visit a school, hold a clothing drive, serve lunch at a food bank or donate blood. The opportunities are endless!

Spread the word throughout your firm and recruit co-workers to volunteer on June 24 and/or coordinate a food-drive. Once you determine how you'll participate, submit your volunteer plans to the MSCPA to be included in our event promotion. A t-shirt template will be available if your group would like to print them. Email Hannah Naranjo with questions.

How Do I Choose an Organization to Help?

If you don't already have a standing relationship with a charitable organization and you are looking for a good cause, the MSCPA has a few suggestions. Or, reach out to your local schools, libraries and community organizations to learn how you can get involved.
