Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP, the largest CPA firm headquartered in the Southern U.S., with an office in Chester, recently collected and donated 559,973 pounds of food to the communities in which it serves in 11 states across the firm’s footprint.
This amount include 35,548 cans of tuna and 259,540 jars of peanut butter, the most requested items sought during the busy summer months when children are not in school and do not benefit from school-provided lunches.
The second annual Count the Cans food drive was held from June 14-24 and focused on collecting monetary and non-perishable food donations in an effort to alleviate the suffering of the one-out-of-every-six Americans who struggle with hunger. As part of Dixon Hughes Goodman’s GIVES (Go. Invest. Volunteer. Engage. Serve.) Initiative, the firm’s multiple offices join together once a year to support a collective cause that will directly impact the communities in which it is located.
