Armanino Celebrates Largest “Great Give” Yet, Serving More Than 100 Nonprofit Organizations and Charities from Coast to Coast

Event Coincides with a Relaunch of Volunteer Vacations Program to Continue Year-round Impact

SAN RAMON, Calif., June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armanino LLP, one of the 20 largest accounting and business consulting firms in the U.S., today announced it completed its largest community giving day of service, known as the Great Give, with Armanino employees volunteering over 15,000 hours of service to more than 100 charitable causes and nonprofit organizations from coast to coast. Volunteers were excited to highlight many of the projects they participated in during the annual event.

The annual event coincided with the Armanino Foundation’s relaunch of its Volunteer Vacations program, sponsoring partners and staff for multi-day community service trips. This year marks the program’s inaugural racial justice immersion trip where more than a dozen Armanino team members joined the 1256 Movement in Tulsa, Oklahoma to renovate homes for families as reparation for the destruction of 1,256 homes in the Greenwood District (historically known as Black Wall Street) and projects with the Cherokee Nation.

“As we transition back to our offices, one of the most impactful things we are able to do once again is come together as a firm and participate in the Great Give day of service and our organized Volunteer Vacations,” said Matt Armanino, CEO of Armanino. “Making a positive impact on our communities is part of our purpose and I’m so proud to see so many people answered the challenge by rolling up their sleeves and spending a day to complete much-needed projects all over the country.”

“Volunteer Vacations have been an important part of the Foundation’s work, where we provide the resources to help our team members travel from around the country to a project site for a multi-day project with lasting impact,” said Mary Tressel, chair of the Armanino Foundation. “This year will see our volunteers working side-by-side on environmental restorative work, tutoring children with reading and writing, and much more.”
