BlumShapiro to Sponsor Thanksgiving Food Basket Program
WEST HARTFORD, CT – BlumShapiro, the largest regional accounting, tax and business consulting firm based in New England, announced today it will partner with Christian Community Action (CCA) to provide Thanksgiving Day meals to more than 1,700 families and seniors in New Haven.
The BlumShapiro Thanksgiving Food Basket Campaign for Christian Community Action is a community wide, hands-on program that will collect non-perishable food items and financial contributions, as well as provide volunteers to help bag all donated items for distribution to families and seniors right before Thanksgiving Day.
“We are very proud to partner with Christian Community Action to help bring a full traditional dinner to the Thanksgiving Day tables of more than 1,700 families and seniors in New Haven,” said Tom DeVitto, Chief Marketing Officer at BlumShapiro. “We invite businesses, individuals, schools, church and civic groups and others to join BlumShapiro employees and our families in this community wide effort to help other families have a festive and fulfilling Thanksgiving Day.”
“We are excited to have a company as prestigious as BlumShapiro join us in supporting our Thanksgiving Food Basket initiative,” said Rev. Bonita Grubbs, Christian Community Action Executive Director. “Such display of community spirit and commitment is impressive, and we hope it will inspire others who may not have been aware of this effort to pitch in with food drives, donations and volunteers.”
The BlumShapiro Thanksgiving Food Basket Campaign for CCA will collect non-perishable food items and monetary contributions from October 15 to November 12.
To help companies in their collection efforts, BlumShapiro will provide collection boxes for donated non-perishable food items. Financial contributions to CCA will go towards the purchase of turkeys, additional non-perishable food items and other necessities for a healthy and happy Thanksgiving Day meal. Any amount is appreciated. To donate online, please visit www.ccahelping.org.
Volunteers are needed for a “bagging weekend” on November 17-18 to sort and bag all donated food, along with turkeys, in preparation for distribution to families and seniors on the following Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Both bagging days take place at Casa Community Center, 148 Sylvan Avenue in New Haven, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
