Kansas City accounting and consulting firm MarksNelson announced that their firm will once again see its professionals participate in their annual “Volunteer Day” this Thursday, June 16, working with eight Kansas City nonprofit organizations. More than 130 staff members will "paint, clean, sort food and do yardwork," per a firm statement.
“Volunteer Day” coincides with the firm's Marks of Kindness program, designed to bring professionals together in support of the local community and charitable endeavors therein. The program's goal is to leave a positive impact on Kansas City, as well as build relationships with other nonprofits serving the city. Notably, MarksNelson won the 2015 IMPACT Award from the Kansas City Business Journal due to the program.
MarksNelson professionals were given the choice to work with eight firm nonprofit partners, including: Community Linc, Harvesters, Healing House, Hope House, Hope Center, Morning Side Place, Operation Breakthrough and Powell Gardens.
