Operation Success: Community Service Day Was the First of Many to Come

Volunteering is important. It binds communities together and helps not only the recipient but the giver as well. Giving back to the community is pretty important here at Berno Financial Management, but our team has always volunteered individually or with family members. Until now.

On November 10, our team members joined together for the firm’s first-ever community service day. We closed the office and headed over to the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank to pack boxes for Thanksgiving dinners.

If you haven’t heard of the Freestore Foodbank, check out their website at freestorefoodbank.com. The nonprofit is one of Ohio’s largest food banks, giving away more than 24 million meals annually. It partners with soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers, and other agencies helping those in need throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.

Each of us ended the day energized and grateful. Not only do we get to enjoy Thanksgiving among family and friends, but we received the pleasure of knowing we helped other families to do the same.

We thank our clients for supporting our day of service, and we look forward to making Berno Financial Management Community Service Day an annual event.
