BMSS Legacy Continues the Tradition of Community Service
BMSS Advisors & CPAs employees continue the tradition of serving the communities in which they live and work with a spring BMSS Serve Day on Thursday, May 12th.
In Birmingham, BMSS team members will assist in a variety of ways including painting, gardening or general maintenance at Grace House, East Lake Initiative, Serving You or Barrett Elementary.
Employees from the Gadsden office will serve at the Etowah Community Food Bank and The YMCA of the Coosa Valley where they will assist with landscaping, cleaning and painting for both organizations. BMSS Legacy has provided a $1,000 grant for Serve Day to the YMCA, which will go toward the cost of paint and any other program needs.
The Huntsville team is headed to either Manna House’s hydroponic gardens to fill planters, plant seeds and help with basic garden cleanup, or to Manna House’s main location on Memorial Parkway to prep, plate, and distribute food and hygiene items.
Since BMSS was founded in 1991, community outreach has been a key component of the firm’s identity. In this last year, the creation of the BMSS Legacy team has helped cultivate relationships with nonprofit organizations with the goal of, “empowering employees in the BMSS family of companies to make an impact in their communities whether through their time or material resources.”
“We provide Serve Day opportunities where employees can use their paid volunteer hours. We also have a donor-advised fund. Employees can contribute to the fund and can also apply for grants from the fund for 501c3 organizations that they are passionate about,” said BMSS Legacy Head Kate Fluker on the accessibility of serving.
