Deloitte volunteers made an “impact that matters” throughout the Capital Region
ALBANY, N.Y. (June 15, 2022) — Deloitte, an industry-leading, audit, consulting and tax firm based in New York, recently held their annual Impact Day when thousands of Deloitte professionals throughout the U.S. stepped from their desks to donate their time and talents to local nonprofits. In the Capital Region, more than 50 Deloitte professionals spent the day supporting veterans’ families and helping distribute food to local families in need.
Impact Day is an annual tradition that celebrates Deloitte’s year-round commitment to making an impact that matters.
“We’re excited to work hand in hand with frontline service organizations and leverage the skills and experience of our people to support neighbors in need,” said Matt Widmer, principal, and Deloitte’s lead client service partner for the State of New York. “The pandemic has strained communities and nonprofits over the last few years, so this is an important time to drive social impact in our community.”
Deloitte professionals cleaned up the grounds and planted fresh flowers at the Fisher House located on Holland Avenue in Albany. Other team members supported the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York at their farm in Voorheesville by planting seeds in the farm’s greenhouse, weeding areas of the crop field, and donating materials for future growing seasons; and at their warehouse located by re-sorting and re-boxing donations for distribution to agencies that help the Food Bank feed New Yorkers. Deloitte also presented the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York with a check for over $3,000.
For more than 20 years, Impact Day has been a tradition at Deloitte throughout the United States. This year, Deloitte professionals joined together with local nonprofits in 80 communities to make an impact on more than 1,000 different projects.
