May 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Marketing Manager, Vicki M James, for Thaney & Associates CPAs, P.C. announced today that the employee contribution of $336 collected through the weekly Fundraising Jeans Friday program will benefit Lollypop Farm in Fairport, NY.

“In January 2010, the employees brainstormed for Tax Season Morale Boosters and the Fundraising Jeans Friday program was just one of several ideas that everyone wanted to participate in”, says Marketing Manager, Vicki M James.  The employees pay for the privilege to wear jeans on Fridays and vote every four months for a new charity.  “The program was only started for the intent to keep spirits up during tax season, but it was so well received that we continued past April and are now on our second year,” explains COO, James P Latona, CFFA, CFD.  “We’ve even had people donate when they weren’t participating; now that’s dedication to social activism!” says VP and partner, Scott T Gerken, CPA.  According to Leigh Ann Schoen, Client Service Consultant, who suggested the idea, “I thought it was a great way for us to ‘give back’ and something to look forward to during tax season – it was a win-win.”  

In the past year, Thaney & Associates CPAs’ employees have donated $984.88 to area charities that have a special meaning for them.  Past recipients have been: RADA Charitable Foundation (which supports several area children charities),Thaney & Associates are neighbors with the Rochester Automobile Dealers Association; Cameron Community Ministries which is a client of Thaney’s and sends Holiday cards with the children’s pictures every year, Mary Cariola Children’s Center where one of the employee’s daughter works and Lollypop Farm where one of the employees, a huge advocate for animals, participates in the annual Barktoberfest.  “It was voted that the next few months we will support the Red Cross Natural Disaster Relief specifically for the tornado  victims in Alabama where one of our employees have family.  We couldn’t be prouder to support such a worthy cause and organization.” says Managing Partner, Edward F Thaney, CPA, CVA.
