    Grant Thornton Gives Back

     
    On Thursday, Nov. 15, nearly 800 current and retired partners and managing directors from Grant Thornton LLP offices across the globe gathered in the Scottsdale Airpark during their annual meeting, which was held at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, to help give back to the local area community. During the day, the firm made a check presentation of $12,000 to Kitchen on the Street, a non-profit organization that provides food for children who are not guaranteed a meal over during the weekends. In addition, the partners supplied and assembled emergency food kits for 500 local families in need this holiday season, also through Kitchen on the Street. Joining them in the community event was the Paradise Valley Choir, who entertained with song all morning long. A leader in this community, events like this are just some of the many outreach programs supported through Grant Thornton C.A.R.E.S. (Community Awareness and Responsibility Expressed through Service), a program designed to demonstrate leadership not only in its industry, but also in its community. Through the program, nicknamed GT CARES, employees contribute time, money and expertise to local civic organizations, charities, universities and professional associations.
