Area firm spends day giving back

Wipfli associates volunteer for tenth annual 'Community Day'

An area accounting firm is taking a break from crunching numbers.

Associates from Wipfli in La Crosse volunteered their time this afternoon for their annual “Community Day.” The team was doing everything from scrubbing floors to washing walls at La Crescent’s Animal Rescue.

It’s a chance for the firm to give back to area non-profits.

By the end of the day the group says their volunteer work isn’t really considered work at all.

“It’s just great comradery for all of our associates, but the organizations we work with are so grateful as well that you’re really getting all the award and benefit just by getting to help out, but they’re so appreciative that it makes you feel even better,” said Wipfli Partner John Honadel.

This is the tenth year the firm has been taking part in “Community Day.”
