As part of the 2022 Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) international annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, KPMG U.S. Foundation, Inc., KPMG LLP – University Talent Acquisition, and BAP are proud to announce the BAP Community Impact Day (CID) project. The event is in collaboration with the non-profit social enterprises, Heart of Florida United Way, First Book and The Pack Shack.
On Thursday, July 28th, some volunteers will visit local Boys & Girls Clubs in under-served neighborhoods to teach the children the importance of literacy in their lives. At the end of the day, each child will go home with a brand-new book. Since 2013, we have donated over 40,000 books and resources during our community impact events at the annual meetings.
In addition, some volunteers will participate in a Pack Shack Feed the Funnel Party where we will package 100,000 meals. These meals will be donated to the programs where we host our literacy events, local food banks, and the food pantries at local college campuses – to help combat food insecurity that exists amongst college students.
All BAP annual meeting attendees, except those students and faculty participating in Project Run With It, are expected to participate.
If you would like to participate but are unable to attend the Community Impact Day activities (due to health issues, late arrival, etc.), please email Cheyenne Mullins. There will be a service activity at the hotel – Operation Backpack – for you to do instead.
Volunteer roles for the Literacy Fairs will be assigned during the bus ride to each location. Roles you can choose from are:
Team Lead: Leads a group of children through each station at the Literacy Fair. Participates in the activities with them and makes sure they have an outstanding day.
Station Volunteer: Assists the children with activity at assigned station.
Book Station Volunteer: Organizes books, places bookplates and bookmarks in each book, and delivers books to each station for distribution at the close of the event. When books have been delivered to each station, these volunteers can then participate in the Literacy Fair as a Team or Station volunteer.
We are in need of volunteers for a few important roles – please sign up for these roles now by contacting the appropriate person below:
Photographers: We need photographers with their own camera (SDHC card to be provided) to take pictures during the day, including pictures of the children with a mascot at each location. If you enjoy taking pictures and would like to volunteer for this activity, please send an email to Mia Friederich.
Mascot Volunteers: Would you like to bring a bit of whimsy and fun to the event? Now’s your chance! Dress up like a tiger, elephant (with a pink tutu), frog, etc. If you are interested, please contact Mia Friederich.
Spanish Speaking Volunteers: Do you speak Spanish? We need volunteers who speak Spanish at one of our locations. If you would like to spend some time during the day speaking with the children in Spanish, please contact Mia Friederich.
