NEW YORK, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WeiserMazars LLP, a leading accounting, tax and advisory services firm, recently completed its second annual Days of Service – a volunteer initiative that encourages employees to devote a full work day to assisting local service and not-for-profit agencies. The Days of Service initiative is part of the firm's We Are WeiserMazars program that fosters employees' personal and professional growth through the fundamental principles of association, respect and excellence.
A total of 511 employees, including 68 partners, participated in this year's Days of Service held on June 1, 8, and 15. Employees spent the day at 23 community and non-profit programs throughout New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Sacramento and Chicago. Volunteer activities ranged from sorting food for the hungry at the Community Foodbank of New Jersey; to leading students on a tour around the Metropolitan Museum of Art; throwing a "Frozen" themed party for a young girl at the Make-a-Wish® Foundation in New Jersey; gardening and planting to provide a butterfly habitat in Sunken Meadow State Park; and sorting children's clothes as part of the Cradles to Crayons' Giving Factory in Pennsylvania.
Over the course of three weeks, WeiserMazars' volunteer corps brought smiles and joy to hundreds of people in need and the dedicated organizations that serve them.
"We are very proud to see the growth this program has had in just one year," said Kenneth R. Pogrob, leading Partner of We Are WeiserMazars. "At WeiserMazars, we emphasize the importance of collaboration in everything we do at work. The Days of Service is an opportunity for us to bring the spirit of teamwork and helping others to the world outside of our offices, all while supporting our local communities."
