    Since it is the season of giving, we have decided to host a contest between our members. During the months of November and December, we are encouraging members to post random acts of kindness in their community to the pinned discussion post on Connect! At the end of each month, we will choose, at random, 5 firms' random act of kindness to be featured on our social media and website! Acts of kindness include, pro bono work, helping a colleague inside/outside of the office, volunteering in the community, etc.

    Our firm had a holiday-giving tree -- fulfilling requests of people in need this holiday season. Employees purchased the items requested and then together, we wrapped and delivered the presents. This was just one of multiple loads of presents we collected!

    Our firm donated over 5,000 of non-perishable food to one of our client's mission to completely stock a local town's food pantry.  The client company had a contest among their departments, and of course, our contribution went toward the Accounting department who have a clever name of Kicking Assets and Taking Names.  In the end, Kicking Assets came in second place with 10,837 pounds of food.  The total pounds of food donated to the local pantry was 81,153 - which was amazing, and the entire food pantry has been filled for the winter!

    Every year our firm participates in the Bergen Volunteer Center's All Wrapped Up Program.  This year we were able to sponsor a local family of nine to make sure they have a holiday to remember!  Gifts such as toys, clothing and gift cards were purchased individually by members of Team Traphagen.
