HSCPA and Accounting Students Give Back Day at Ala Moana Beach Park
Making a difference in the community that we all live and play in is a given and it takes working together for this common goal. On Saturday, November 7th, 40 Y-CPA professionals and UH Accounting Club / BAP members gathered at Ala Moana Beach Park for HSCPA’s annual Give Back Day. We even had “mini” volunteers! Despite the inclement weather, everyone showed up donned some gloves, picked up a trash bag, and the group headed out in various locations of the park. One condition: The group returning with the most unusual trash would win a prize. The winning group returned with a bag full of interesting trash which included a car [cleaning] brush, an inflated Minnie Mouse helium balloon, and a large rubber ball.
After a couple of hours in the rain – and sun – we all enjoyed chilled water and a nice bento lunch! Our special thanks to Robert H.Y. Leong & Company, CPAs for sponsoring this event and for the continued support of the efforts of the Y-CPAs and accounting students. Mr. Leong and his firm have been staunch supporters of this event for many years and we all appreciate it – thank you very much!
The Y-CPAs are proud of its commitment to community service and invite others to join in the support. Let’s beautify our surroundings. Be kind to the environment and those around you by picking up trash when you see it lying around. It doesn't matter who left it there, just pick it up!
