Anders Selects the Partners for Pets as 2020 Charity of Choice
Anders partners and staff have selected Partners for Pets as the firm’s 2020 Charity of Choice. Now in its 15th year, the Charity of Choice program combines fundraising activities and volunteer efforts to support one local charity each year. Charities are submitted by members of the firm, and all members of the firm, from interns to partners, have the opportunity to vote for their choice at the firm’s meeting each January. In 2019, Anders raised more than $24,000 for the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery.
Elena Graber, an accountant in the Anders Outsourced Accounting Services Group, volunteers and fosters animals for Partners for Pets and nominated the organization for our 2020 Charity of Choice. Partners for Pets regularly visits animal control facilities and rescues animals that have used up their time, need medical care, and/or are too fragile for shelter life.
While activities such as Pick Me Up Carts, busy season games and volunteer activities are held throughout the year, the first major Anders fundraising event will be the annual “Hoops for Hope” NCAA basketball pool, which draws participation from clients, colleagues, referral sources and friends of the firm from all over the country.
In addition to Partners for Pets, other beneficiaries of the Anders Charity of Choice program have included the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery, Angels’ Arms, Shriners Hospitals for Children – St. Louis, Stray Rescue of St. Louis, Friends of Kids with Cancer, Basket of Hope, Young Friends of Habitat for Humanity, Nurses for Newborns, Girls on the Run, Lafayette Industries, KidSmart, Re-Building Together and Kids Under Twenty-One (KUTO). Anders has raised over $330,000 in the past 15 years.
