West Palm Beach, FL (July 5, 2020) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is honored to support the West Palm Beach community with the donation of $9,200 to Palm Beach County Food Bank by the RSM US Foundation.
This is part of a larger firm-wide initiative that provided RSM employees with a weekly per diem allowance for their use in supporting local grocers and restaurants – some of the sectors hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic, and a significant number of the firm’s client base – through the end of April. For employees who elected not to take advantage of the per diem, those funds were donated to food banks in the cities where RSM’s 11,000+ people live and work nationwide in the U.S. and Canada. Both approaches ultimately supported local communities.
To date, RSM has donated more than $1.8 million to local food banks across the country through this effort, and $2.9 million was spent by RSM’s people nationwide to support local restaurants and grocers.
“Working exclusively from home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic was a big change for our people and for our communities,” said Kerensa Butler, Office Leader. “To help ease the pain of restaurants and grocers, and to help our people and our communities, the RSM US Foundation was pleased to provide this extra support during these unprecedented times.”
