CS&L Cares Holiday Giving Campaign 2016

CS&L Cares Holiday Giving Campaign 2016

(January 2017 - Bradenton, Sarasota, Tampa) CS&L CPAs, a certified public accounting firm located in Bradenton, Sarasota and Tampa, is pleased to announce that the firm’s corporate philanthropy initiative, CS&L Cares, hosted a successful holiday giving campaign. CS&L Cares is a platform for employee involvement in the community through volunteer hours, in-kind donations, fundraisers and more. This initiative was launched as part of the firm’s 60th anniversary celebration in 2014 and has become a cornerstone of the firm’s culture. The 2016 holiday giving program was developed by a group of employees charged with leading the firm’s philanthropic and teambuilding activities and endorsed by the leadership team.

The results of the campaign include:

  • An inter-office food drive competition collected more than 230 items donated to Metropolitan Ministries of Tampa, Our Daily Bread of Bradenton and All Faiths Food Bank of Sarasota. In addition, employees served volunteer hours with All Faiths Food Bank to distribute Thanksgiving turkeys and with Metropolitan Ministries to assemble Christmas meals.
  • A firm wide fundraiser for Manatee Children’s Services raised almost $2,000, which allowed volunteer shoppers within the firm to purchase 2 meals for the residents of the organization’s shelter and complete the wish lists for 12 children residing in the shelter. The gifts were wrapped by the employees during a special lunch hour wrapping party and delivered in time for Christmas.

“Our employees have deep connections to charitable causes in their community, so we look to them to guide our corporate philanthropy activities” states Bob Stanell, Managing Principal of CS&L CPAs. “Through the CS&L Cares program, our employees demonstrate their leadership and passion through service, making this region an even better place to live and work.”

CS&L Cares is a year-round philanthropy initiative. Organizations seeking volunteers, board leadership and other support may contact Lesley Hatfield, Marketing Director, for more information.
