Earlier this week, McKonly & Asbury joined together our recruiting efforts with our commitment to Purpose Through Profits by partnering with Central Pennsylvania Food Bank in their efforts to #FightHunger.
As part of our firm’s recruiting initiatives, we conduct an Externship Program each year. This program is designed to give students an opportunity to experience and learn more about our culture at McKonly & Asbury over a series of events from May through July so they can observe what a career as a staff accountant/staff consultant at McKonly & Asbury is like.
The most recent event for the Externship Program allowed the externs to experience teamwork first hand, while giving them a preview of how important Purpose Through Profits is to our team as externs and McKonly & Asbury buddies helped pack and sort food for such an important organization in the community, and one of our clients, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
During their time at the Food Bank, the students and McKonly & Asbury team members packed 160 military share boxes that will go to deserving veterans, counted out 970 watermelons for inventory, and counted and packed 210 pounds of pretzels as well as over 4,000 pounds of carrots into single family servings to be given out to families in need!
Thank you to our 2018 Externs and all of our team members who donated their time to help the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank in their efforts!
