Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP (HA&W), the largest Georgia-headquartered tax, accounting and business consulting firm, was recently named United Way’s 2013 Volunteer Partner of the Year.

The United Way’s Volunteer Partner of the Year Award is granted every year to the company who best partnered with the United Way volunteerism department to help plan and implement a volunteer project to engage employees in the work of United Way.

HA&W partnered with United Way to enable its annual Spirit Week efforts to make an even larger impact. HA&W’s Spirit Week is an internal event that is a week full of speakers, panel discussions, fundraising and volunteer events that ultimately lead up to their yearly and highly-anticipated Spirit Day.

On November 22, 2013, more than 90 percent of HA&W’s employee base participated in a volunteer project on Spirit Day. Volunteer projects included building tables, making lunches, sorting medical supplies and assisting in classrooms, just to name a few. With the help of United Way, HA&W was able to double its donation rate and increase their community involvement. This year HA&W anticipates having over 300 volunteer participants in its annual firm volunteer effort.

In late April 2014, HA&W was recognized as United Way’s 2013 Volunteer Partner of the Year at an awards breakfast at The Loudermilk Center in Atlanta, Ga.

“We had close to 250 HA&W employees that were involved with 11 different organizations that spread across 13 different locations in Atlanta on our Spirit Day in 2013,” said Richard Kopelman, HA&W’s CEO and managing partner. “The Firm as a whole is humbled to be receiving United Way’s 2013 Volunteer Partner of the Year award. It is big news for us and we have already begun planning to make 2014 even better!”

HA&W is actively engaged year-round in many volunteer opportunities that involve organizations such as My Sisters House, Families First’s Prep-A-Scholar Program, and many others. For the year 2014, HA&W is developing plans to double their United Way donation campaign.
