RALEIGH, N.C. (September 29, 2014) ―Staff members from Hughes Pittman & Gupton, LLP, a Triangle-based CPA firm serving the financial management needs of local, multi-state, and international businesses, as well as their owners, donated their time in support of Rebuilding Together on Friday, September 19thin in observance of the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants’ (NCACPA) third annual CPA Day of Service.
Rebuilding Together’s mission is to make a sustainable impact on preserving and revitalizing homes and communities, assuring that low-income homeowners, from the elderly and disabled to families with children, live in warmth, safety, and independence. HPG CPA’s and staff members spent the day painting and repairing several homes in downtown Raleigh.
“We are pleased to be able to work with such a great organization,” said Lauren Joyce, Senior Audit Manager and board member of Rebuilding Together. “It was a wonderful experience to see the immediate impact we had on a family’s life and we are so grateful to have the opportunity to reinforce our commitment to our community through the Day of Service.”
The goal of CPA Day of Service is to allow members of the accounting profession to show their dedication to the cities and towns in which they live and conduct business, by providing volunteer services to a charitable organization and cause of their choosing. It also highlights the many ways they give back to their communities on a regular basis as servants within their communities and ambassadors of their profession.
The CPA Day of Service is sponsored by the NCACPA. More than 2,000 CPAs and staff members throughout the state were projected to participate in this year’s event.
