Insero Launches Inaugural Volunteer Day with Rochester Childfirst Network

Insero & Co. CPAs recently held its inaugural Volunteer Day to benefit Rochester Childfirst Network, one of the nation’s oldest organizations providing support to children and families.

 

While Insero and its employees regularly give back to their local communities, Volunteer Day presents an opportunity for staff to come together and make a significant impact for a single organization.

“We take pride in giving back to the communities in which we work, live, and play,” said Nancy Catarisano, Managing Partner of Insero & Co. CPAs. “Volunteer Day is just one of the ways we encourage all of our employees to get involved and make a difference.”

 

More than 100 Insero employees from Rochester, Ithaca, Cortland and Watkins Glen spent the day working on improvement projects to ensure the children have safe and stimulating spaces to learn and play with art, music, and STEM applications. In addition, the firm’s Insero Cares program provides funding to match employee’s direct volunteer time serving eligible charities. As a result, the firm and its employees raised over $12,500 for the organization.

 

“It really is all about the kids,” said Ann Marie Stephan, Executive Director of Rochester Childfirst Network. “Children learn through exploration and play, and we appreciate Insero’s help in providing a nurturing setting for them.”

Insero established its inaugural Volunteer Day in conjunction with RSM’s Volunteer Week. Insero has been a member of RSM US Alliance, a premier affiliation of independent accounting and consulting firms, since 1992. Insero and the RSM US Alliance team have worked together to maximize the volunteer impact for Rochester Childfirst Network.

 

Next year, all RSM US Alliance member firms will have the opportunity and resources to build Volunteer Day in their local markets. This will all be made possible because of Insero and their commitment to stewardship.

 

RSM recently held its tenth annual RSM US Volunteer Week, previously known as Volunteer Day, to benefit local and national nonprofits across the country. While RSM’s people regularly give back to their local communities, RSM Volunteer Week represents part of RSM’s commitment to the communities where the firm’s people work and live.

 

In addition to support from Insero and RSM, the project was supported by donations from a number of local businesses including Wegmans, Home Depot Henrietta, Home Depot Penfield, Lowes Webster, Lowes Henrietta, Broccolo Tree & Lawn Care, Sarah’s Garden Center, Runnings Brockport, Roc Brewing Co., and Mark’s Pizzeria.
