Mazars USA LLP, an accounting, tax, and consulting firm, recently launched its Annual Giving Theme, which for 2018 is fighting hunger.
Mazars said it will donate $100,000 to organizations throughout six states dedicated to improving the quality of life to those in need, and its employees will increase food collection and volunteer efforts to fight hunger in their local communities.
Mazars USA will be making donations from its Philanthropic Fund to charities in the fight against hunger in New Jersey, New York City, Long Island, Philadelphia, Maryland, Sacramento and Chicago, including:
“Giving back is extremely important to our firm and employees, and we hope that our donations and additional volunteer efforts will make a real difference in our communities.” said Victor Wahba, chairman and CEO of Mazars USA LLP. “Hunger affects 1 in 6 people in the United States and we are proud to provide additional resources to help address this critical issue.”
The contributions from Mazars, it said, will provide thousands of meals to those in need.
“On behalf of the Mercy Inn Soup Kitchen and Trinity Lutheran Church we would like to thank Mazars USA for their ongoing generous support. Mazars USA’s contribution is allowing us to make much needed repairs so we can provide a better experience for our guests in the neighboring communities,” said Charlie Ciccio, food coordinator, The Mercy Inn.
