CPA Day of Service: Sign Up to Volunteer Friday, Sept. 20, 2013!
Hosted by the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA), this single day of volunteer service represents the CPA profession's ongoing commitment to serving the communities where its professionals live and work.
Approximately 700 people volunteer statewide each year and work at volunteer locations encompassing a variety of organizations and including both indoor and outdoor projects. Some organizations with CPA volunteers include Honor Flights, Central Virginia Food Bank, BARK, James River Park System, The Arc and many more. We encourage you to volunteer for a community organization of your choice. You can choose to participate as an individual, group or firm. Commit to a whole day of volunteering, or just a few hours — it's up to you!
