Employees of Baltimore, Md.-based CPA and consulting firm Gross, Mendelsohn & Associates recently spent four days volunteering with two local nonprofits as part of its annual community efforts.

Firm staff helped the Maryland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by feeding animals, making cat beds and cleaning kennels and the SPCA property.

Volunteers also served lunch and distributed clothing with Paul’s Place, which offers hot meals, fresh clothing, a free clinic and after-school children’s programs in Baltimore’s Pigtown neighborhood.
