CPAs volunteer time at Food Bank
 

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- On a normal day, certified public accounts do tax planning and help businesses understand their finances. But today accountants with the North Carolina CPA Association moved boxes instead of numbers at the Food Bank in Wilmington.

Accountants say they want to give back to the community and actually become more of a team after volunteering.

"I think it is kind of eye-opening to be here today," Adam Shay said. "It causes you to be a little more compassionate and aware of people's situations. I want to talk with my team as well and see what we can do on a more regular basis."

The Food Bank accepts volunteers and donations year round. It's open on Marstellar Street Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.

It is a wonderful to see that a food bank exists in a city. It is more precious when businesses take part, not only in their finances, but when they assist by giving of their time. This is community!

The Food Bank is actually located at 1314 Marstellar St.
