Last week, we held an event with Ernst and Young, learning more about their social initiatives and using our creativity to decorate hats to donate to Boston Children’s Hospital for kids diagnosed with cancer. We were very excited to welcome EY Campus Recruiter, Kristen Schmidt, who gave us an overview of EY as a company and its philanthropic events.
EY is one of the “Big Four” accounting firms, specializing in Tax, Assurance, and Advisory. The company’s Boston branch is currently located in the John Hancock tower in Copley Square, right in the heart of the city. They believe in supporting local companies, so they organize company volunteer opportunities at local Boston hubs, such as the Greater Boston Food Bank and Cradles to Crayons. Nationwide, they partner and volunteer with Boys and Girls Club and United Way of America.
After a brief informational session, Kristen explained that we will be supporting Codi’s Hats by decorating white baseball caps to donate. Codi’s Hats is a nonprofit that provides hats for pediatric patients all over the nation. Our event members used their creativity to draw fun designs, network with each other, and really bring out their artistic talents. Our hat designs ranged from fun and kooky flowers to mini pineapples to a cool aquarium scene.
Thanks for this wonderful opportunity, EY and Kristen, and thank you all who were able to attend and volunteer!
