– The Kalamazoo office of Plante Moran has received a Volunteer Kalamazoo STAR Award.
The Kalamazoo office was nominated by Family & Children Services for its support of their child welfare programs and services as part of the accounting and business advisory firm’s PM Cares initiative. Each year, Plante Moran picks a firm-wide focus and challenges its Midwest offices to support a non-profit in their market. For the current year, the theme was life skills.
The Kalamazoo office dubbed their effort “Hallway Wars” and held a series of food drives, a hallway decorating contest, adopt-a-family holiday program, jeans days fundraiser and other programs that encourage the 76 accountants and staff to support Family & Children Services. To date, the office has raised more than $6,800 and collected more than 4,000 canned goods. .
“We are honored to be recognized by Volunteer Kalamazoo as one of its STAR recipients,” said Sarah Colvin, office manager of Plante Moran’s Kalamazoo office. ”Giving back to the communities where we live and work is integral to our firm culture. Through our PM Cares initiative, our 2,000 professionals can make a real, impactful difference in so many lives.
“This year, we are so pleased to support the good work of Family & Children Services. Each year, the agency offers a wide range of counseling, foster care, adoption services and other programs to support children and their families.”
Since its inception in 1986, Volunteer Kalamazoo and MLive Media Group have co-sponsored the annual STAR Awards program. STAR stands for Sharing Time and Resources and recognizes the contributions of the outstanding volunteers who exemplify the spirit of volunteerism.
