DOVER - Employees of the Certified Public Accounting firm of Leone, McDonnell & Roberts recently participated in a holiday giving campaign aimed at helping families in need. The firm chose a lofty goal of supporting five worthy Community Action Partnership organizations throughout New Hampshire to collect items for.
With each LMR office participating, the team collected much-needed food items for the food pantries at Strafford County Community Action Partnership in Dover and Southern New Hampshire Services (Seabrook Food Pantry). The delivery to Southwestern Community Services in Keene included items for their shelter - pillows, towels, cleaning supplies and more. For the Community Action Program, Belknap-Merrimack Counties in Concord, tents, tarps, blankets, cookware and more were collected for homeless families and those families entering new homes. Additional donations were collected for the Tri-County Community Action Program in Berlin as well.
The choice to partner with Community Action Partnership was a simple one. Their vision of helping to create opportunities for all people to thrive and build strong communities resonates with the values of Leone, McDonnell & Roberts as well. Their agencies serve millions of individuals offering services in healthcare, childcare, employment and training, energy assistance, housing, food assistance, etc.
"We are thrilled that we were able to support the five Community Action Partnership agencies in New Hampshire," said LMR Managing Partner Jack Callahan. "Not only did we collect a significant number of needed items for each CAP organization, but we were able to blanket many communities through our state with warmth and hope."
