LIVINGSTON, NJ — After last year’s resounding success, Levine, Jacobs & Company LLC is once again collecting non-perishable food items to support two local food pantries—Christine’s Kitchen at Holy Trinity Church in West Orange and the Bobrow Kosher Food Pantry at Oheb Congregation in South Orange—in hopes that the accounting firm will surpass last year’s donations.

“The key word is ‘community,’” said Michael Karu, CPA/CFF, Levine, Jacobs & Company. “We live in the community, work in the community, play in the community, and have to support the community. Not everyone is as fortunate as we are and everyone needs to give back to whatever level is possible.”

Those at Levine, Jacobs & Company are also are firm believers in “crowd funding,” Karu said. According to Karu, if one person gives one can of food, while helpful, it doesn’t go very far. However, if 10 people, 100 people or 1,000 people each donate one can of food, it will make a difference.

“At Levine Jacobs, we have the opportunity to give back to those in need through our food drive,” said Karu. “It allows our clients and friends to be part of something that can truly make a difference in our community.”

Clients visiting the Livingston office for their tax appointments are invited to bring a non-perishable, unexpired food item with them when they visit the Livingston office. Those clients sending in their tax materials can also participate by including a check to either Holy Trinity Church or Bobrow Food Pantry.
