Orlando and Central Florida ( July 10, 2013) — Averett Warmus Durkee (AWD), accountants providing assurance, accounting and tax compliance services to timeshare and vacation ownership HOAs and businesses, once again are reinvesting in their local community. Each year the firm participates with a number of philanthropic groups to host events, provide a helping hand and sponsor drives to collect food, funds and other necessities.
Among the projects being undertaken this summer, sixteen of the company’s staff members volunteered in a drive to serve breakfast at the Men’s Pavilion of the Coalition for the Homeless in mid-June. AWD also collected toiletries, such as toothpaste, body lotion, etc., which were distributed to attendees during breakfast. The nonprofit organization, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, Inc. – an AWD client since 1990 – provides homeless men, women, and children with shelter, meals, and rehabilitative counseling services in order to restore them to the mainstream of society. Also in June, the company hosted a retreat for Opportunity, Community, Ability Inc., which gives school-aged children and young adults with autism and other related disabilities opportunities to get involved in age-appropriate activities with their peers.
According to Partners Tom Durkee CPA and Lena Combs CPA, AWD looks for ways to get involved in charitable organizations within their local community as much as possible. “We are, ourselves, richly rewarded when we take advantage of these various opportunities to participate,” says Durkee. “Our firm and the entire AWD team feel we are blessed with so many advantages. We welcome ways in which to share some of what we have been given.”
