Animal welfare has always been a great concern of mine, The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals New York Inc. is my choice for the MY95 donation.
In a graduation speech given by Denzel Washington at Dillard University, he said something that really stuck with me; “The most selfish thing you can do is to help someone else. Why is it selfish? Because the gratification, the goodness, the good feeling that I get from helping others… nothing’s better than that.” I think I experienced that good feeling Denzel was talking about.
Marvin & Company’s fourth My95: Supporting the Double H Ranch
I am proud to support the Double H Ranch with the "My95" campaign. Double H Ranch provides camp to children with life threatening illnesses at no cost to the families. It is so important that kids are allowed to be kids, and the Double H Ranch provides that opportunity to children who otherwise may not be able to have that experience.
Marvin & Company’s “My95” initiative has given me the opportunity to make an extra difference in the causes I already support. Ninety-five dollars won’t end world hunger, however it has allowed me to improve the lives of local people in need. That’s why I am pleased to allocate “My95” to the Sister Maureen Joyce Center’s “Garden of Feedin."
Town of Colonie Supervisor Paula Mahan along with Town Board members Paul Rosano and Melissa Von Dollen issued a proclamation today honoring Marvin and Company, P.C. on the occassion of its 95th anniversary.
I am pleased to allocate “My95” to the Troy HS Quiz Bowl National Competition. Trivia plays a big part in Danna's life. Through trivia she met the mother of one of the members of the Troy High School MasterMinds Team. Their team earned the opportunity to compete at the National High School Quiz Bowl Championships to be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The team has actually qualified for the past two years, but didn't compete last year because they weren't able to raise enough funds for the trip.
This year marks the 95th anniversary of Marvin & Company Certified Public Accountants and Consultants. In reflecting on this recently, our thoughts kept returning to the people who have made a lasting difference at every stage of our evolution and growth—our clients and our people.
When you think about people who truly are in need here in our country, you might visualize families living in poverty, homeless men and women or malnourished children. I know I have. But like layers of an onion, a big problem often is traceable to many underlying causes—and it also breeds a host of smaller, but no less insidious, issues. Those issues often are overlooked; yet for the people they affect, they’re problems that impact their dignity and obstruct their path to better days.
