KPMG’s Community Involvement Program
As part of KPMG’s commitment to the community, on Saturday August 23rd members of the KPMG DC Network of Latinos volunteered to help the DC Public School system with its DC School Beautification Day. They did painting, cleaning classrooms, moving equipment to storage, cleaning, mulching and planting around the school grounds. Many KPMG employees who are also ALPFA members came with family members including children who saw first hand how volunteering for a few hours can make a big difference. The school principal and the staff were very appreciative for the help received.

MUCHAS GRACIAS FOR VOLUNTEERING!
Following our 4th Annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) presentation this January, on March 1st our chapter had its second volunteering activity at The Child and Family Network Center located in Alexandria, VA and sponsored by KPMG's Hispanic Network. Twelve volunteers came and helped with tax preparation, translation, tax return reviewing, greeting and screening. Volunteers included board members, ALPFA members and friends of ALPFA. The comment we heard often was "This experience was both humbling and very rewarding".
Another wonderful opportunity to serve is by helping seniors citizens with their IRS Economic Stimulus Payment Rebate. See attached file for dates and locations or contact Fairfax County's Elsa Luis at 703-324-1554 or email@example.com
