Volunteers from the 14th largest accounting, tax and business consulting firm in the New York metropolitan area's Livingston office paid a visit to the Interfaith Food Pantry to sort donation, repackage bulk items, taking inventory of school supplies and work in the pantry's new community garden.

Citrin Cooperman employees participated in the 3rd Annual Citrin Cooperman Cares day last Monday in which employees from the firm's five offices were dispatched to area non-profits to help out for a day.

“Our firm is committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. It’s part of our culture here and something that Joel Cooperman firmly believes in," said Alex Serrano, the co-managing partner of the Livingston office, as he presented the pantry with a $5,000 donation. “We serve many industries including the non-profit sector, which gives us a great deal of insight into the challenges that non-profits face with staffing and funding."

The Interfaith Food Pantry is dedicated to helping disadvantaged families receive adequate nutrition and quality food. Last year, the pantry served 10,500 people with 879,000 pounds of food.

The pantry embraced the visit from Citrin Cooperman saying the firm demonstrated a strong sense of caring during the visit.

“The employees of Citrin Cooperman work incredibly hard during their annual visits. They always come with a great deal of interest in understanding the issue of hunger and are determined to make an impact with their time, talent and generosity,” said Doug McMahon, Volunteer Coordinator for the Interfaith Food Pantry. “They are just a great group of people that truly care."
