To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of CBIZ this year, a total of 20,000 hours of volunteer time in local communities nationwide will be donated in addition to the donation of $20,000 to a CBIZ-sponsored charity. The Tampa Bay office chose to volunteer for both Junior Achievement and Bay Pines Veterans Hospital.

More than 50 Junior Achievement volunteers spent the morning at Lynch Elementary School in St. Petersburg teaching 2nd, 3rd and 5th graders a variety of different lesson plans. Due to the efforts of our volunteers, we were able to reach more than 300 students through the Junior Achievement program.

More than 60 C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center volunteers spent the morning visiting with veterans, cleaning and sanitizing wheelchairs, and assisting veterans with their commute to a Veterans Day Ceremony honoring all who served.

Altogether, more than 190 CPAs with their family members and friends gathered to give back to 14 different Florida communities on the 2016 CPA Day of Service. “CPA Day of Service is a great way for CPAs to unite for the greater good of a community,” said Jessi Levine, 2015-16 Young CPA Committee Chair and Manager at CBIZ MHM Tampa Bay. “We could not have done it without the many volunteers who showed up with smiles and ready hands to make Florida a better place to live and work!”
