Firms giving back: Illinois CPA Society holds Day of Service


The Illinois CPA Society held its twelfth annual CPA Day of Service on Sept. 24, with more activities planned later this fall.

Approximately 500 CPAs volunteered across the state for a variety of activities, including helping local animal shelters, preparing meals at food banks, and fundraising for various causes.

“Our annual CPA Day of Service is an incredible opportunity for CPAs to come together all across Illinois to help better their communities,” said Todd Shapiro, Illinois CPA Society president and CEO, in a statement. “This is the second year that the ‘coming together’ part has been challenged by COVID-19, but the resolve these volunteers have shown by finding safe, creative, and generous ways to support their local communities and the charitable organizations that they care about is truly inspiring, and their efforts are sure to make long-lasting impacts.”

Organizations the CPA Day of Service supported include Almost Home Kids, Bernie’s Book Bank, Feed My Starving Children, Food for Greater Elgin, Forest Preserves of Cook County, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Midwest Food Bank, PAWS, Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Anti-Cruelty Society, and the Bridge Teen Center.
