As many firms begin their various, charitable drives as the holiday season approaches, some have started their efforts well before the end of the year. Namely,WeiserMazars' Woodbury, NY office has been regularly donating their time and efforts since early summer to theMercy INN, located at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Wyandanch, NY. The soup kitchen serves hot lunches to those in need, Monday through Friday, year-round.

Since late June, WeiserMazars professionals, ranging from partner to administrative level, began volunteering their time regularly at the Mercy Inn. Every Monday from 9:30am - 1:30pm, two rotating WeiserMazars employees can be found helping out at the kitchen - a rotation that's set to occur indefinitely.

Additionally, Monday sees a sandwich drive at the WeiserMazars office, wherein extra sandwiches are collected in the morning to be delivered to Mercy INN by lunchtime.

"Mercy INN is a wonderful organization helping the very young to the very old," says Lisa Bott, Woodbury office manager for WeiserMazars. "My colleagues and I find volunteering our time and donating food to be a very rewarding experience and it is one of the ways we are supporting our community and giving back."
