KPMG Builds Bears for Kids

Thousands of KPMG LLP employees came together in more than 90 offices nationwide on Friday, December 4, to participate in a unique community service event which will combine the audit, tax and advisory firm’s support for literacy with charitable giving.

KPMG employees mobilized for “Operation Holiday Bear Hugs” to create over 22,000 holiday packages to be donated to local charities and hospitals for children. The holiday packages consisted of a new teddy bear, which employees assembled, dressed and adorned with a special holiday greeting for the child receiving the bear, and a brand new book.

The books were provided through KPMG’s Family for Literacy (FFL) program.

The Atlanta KPMG Office donated 200 bears to CURE Childhood Cancer for distribution at Egleston and Scottish Rite during the holidays. CURE would like to recognize KPMG for their volunteer efforts and thank them for all of the bears they have provided.
