The Crawford & Associates staff were pleased to participate in the OSCPA 2015 CPA Day of Service this past October. While our involvement was not as we had planned, we were nonetheless pleased to be able to contribute to this statewide effort. Our staff was scheduled to work on the designated day of service at the OKC Regional Food Bank similar to last year where we would help prepare meals; however, we were contacted the day previous to our scheduled work day and informed the Food Bank had to unexpectedly close that day. That did not deter us though from getting involved in another way. We went out and purchased over 60 pounds of cereal and then dropped the boxes by the Food Bank. Thanks to the OSCPA for coordinating this annual event and giving statewide CPAs the opportunity to get involved in community service statewide.
