Dixon Hughes Goodman Donates More Than 400,000 Pounds of Food During Third Annual Count the Cans Campaign

Charlotte, N.C., July 9, 2014 – Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP, the largest CPA firm headquartered in the Southern U.S., recently donated 431,475 pounds of food to the communities in which it serves in 11 states across the firm’s footprint.

This amount includes 26,947 cans of fruit gathered on “Fruity Friday” and 26,947 wellness items gathered on “Wellness Wednesday,” two new focus areas created for this year’s campaign which carried the theme “One Can Make a Difference” and received participation from a majority of the firm’s 1,800+ employees.

“People are the heart of our core values and we strive to embody our values in the work we do to enrich the lives of others,” said Matt Snow, Chief Executive Officer for Dixon Hughes Goodman. “Because food banks have an increased need for donations during the summer months when children are out of school, we have a tremendous opportunity to make a meaningful impact on our communities during this season of great need.”

The third annual Count the Cans food drive was held from June 20-27 to collect monetary and non-perishable food donations in an effort to alleviate the suffering of the one out of every six Americans who struggle with hunger. As part of Dixon Hughes Goodman’s GIVES (Go. Invest. Volunteer. Engage. Serve.) Initiative, the firm’s multiple offices join together once a year to support a collective cause that will directly impact the communities in which it is located. Over the three year span of the campaign, the firm has donated 2,931,475 pounds of food.
