WEST DES MOINES – The employees of McGowen, Hurst, Clark & Smith P.C., a local CPA firm, have collected food donations and built a 653-foot food chain throughout the office complex. The six year-old office building, located at 1601 West Lakes Parkway was built in a unique design resembling three diamond-shaped structures all connected. The food chain twists and turns throughout the maze-type hallways of the firm.
Each year the firm adopts a holiday project in an effort to make the Holidays a little merrier for those in need. This year, the Firm chose to collect and donate food to the Food Bank of Iowa and the Winterset Food Pantry.
Rose Breuss, Director of Marketing commented, “Our food chain was started in mid-November and our team members have enthusiastically contributed food each week. In addition, many of our clients, who have seen the food chain grow have also opted to donate food items and/or cash to help us reach our goals. It is just a good feeling, knowing you are helping someone who lives right in your own community.”
The Winterset office of MHC&S has also built a food chain with all items to be donated to the Winterset Food Pantry. All items will be delivered to respective food pantries on Wednesday, December 19th just in time for the holidays. Breuss remarked, “For many years, CPAs have been known as “bean counters”, and I guess it’s true as we have literally been counting the many cans and jars of beans….as well as other type foods.
McGowen, Hurst, Clark & Smith, P.C., is one of Iowa’s largest, local CPA firms, providing accounting, auditing and financial consulting services for more than 60 years.
