Waltham, Mass. firmRodman CPAsannounced this week that they recently held a day of service atHope and Comfort, a local nonprofit that donates personal care products to people in need within the Greater Boston area.
On October 21, a Rodman CPAs team of 19 volunteers donated their time at Hope and Comfort for their "Soap for Hope" program. Rodman's team ultimately packed 488 kits filled with soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, and toothbrushes for students in Boston Public Schools, Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston, and the Waltham Boys and Girls Club.
Another Rodman team member, experienced associate Justin Horr, additionally raised thousands of dollars for Hope and Comfort competing in the World’s Toughest Mudder challenge in Las Vegas late last month.
“Hope and Comfort is very thankful to everyone from Rodman CPAs for all of their volunteer efforts to help us get essential hygiene products to people in need throughout Greater Boston," said Jeff Feingold, Hope and Comfort president and founder, per a statement. "Not only did employees volunteer their time, they also collected hundreds of hygiene items and made a very generous financial donation. We could not help as many people as we do without great volunteers and donors like everyone at Rodman CPAs.”
“Hope and Comfort supports and improves the health and self-esteem of thousands of children and adults in our community,” stated Steve Rodman, president of Rodman CPAs. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with such a great organization and will continue to support their efforts.”
Since its inception in 2011, Hope and Comfort has distributed over 230,000 items, with over 113,000 of those items distributed in 2016 alone, according to the organization.
