New York City, NY – Marcum LLP today announced that it will continue its popular new tradition of closing all of the Firm’s U.S. offices for business the day before Thanksgiving, so that Marcum partners and staff can instead spend the day volunteering in their communities. The second annual Marcum Day of Service on Wednesday, November 23 will benefit the Feeding America nationwide network of 200 member food banks. Marcum is a top national accounting and advisory firm with offices throughout the U.S., as well as Grand Cayman, China and Ireland.
The Marcum Day of Service is a paid Philanthropy Day for all Marcum Group company participants in the U.S., including partners and employees of Marcum LLP, Marcum Financial Services, Marcum Technology, Marcum Search and Marcum Bernstein and Pinchuk.
The program was established in 2015 by the Marcum Foundation, which supports charities and nonprofit community organizations in all Marcum regions. Last year, Marcum offices partnered with local charities of their choosing for volunteer service. The Firm-wide partnership with Feeding America this year is a national initiative, enabling Marcum volunteers across the country to work together toward the shared goal of ending hunger in Marcum communities.
“Community is one of Marcum’s nine core values, and the annual Marcum Day of Service has become one of the most important ways we express this principle,” said Jeffrey M. Weiner, managing partner. “Since we will be partnering with a single national charity this year, the Marcum volunteers will be working as one big team, collaborating in support of our commitment to community.”
“Feeding America will be a tremendous partner for the 2016 Marcum Day of Service,” said Shaun Blogg, chairman of the Marcum Foundation and partner-in-charge of the Firm’s West Palm Beach office. “Hunger is a universal human issue that everyone can relate to on some level. We can’t think of a better cause - or a better charity - to support during the Thanksgiving season.”
According to Feeding America, one in eight Americans struggles to get enough to eat, and hunger or food insecurity exists in virtually every community in the United States. For more information about hunger in America, visit www.feedingamerica.org.
