Bookkeeper360 believes in community outreach as a way to give back for the successes the firm has had in business. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others,” said Mahatma Gandhi. As a business, Bookkeeper360 does just that, in partnership with Canine Companions for Independence ®.
Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence ® (CCI) is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.
Over 5,000 dogs have been matched to those in need since the foundation was founded in 1975.
In 2017, the Bookkeeper360 team volunteered at the Long Island chapter’s luncheon where dogs and their new families, meet after being matched. Lunch was brought and served by Bookkeeper360 team-members, concluding with a tour of the wonderful facility run by Canine Companions. “We love being a partner of CCI. Providing lunch for potential graduates has been such a heartwarming experience,” said Dante Montovano, marketing specialist, Bookkeeper360. This is a special day where months of training culminate with the union between assistance dog, and those in need, for the first time.
In August of 2017, Long Island Chapter’s graduation ceremony, was held. This event was live-streamed with all graduating dog certificates presented by Nick Pasquarosa, founder and CEO of Bookkeeper360; and, JeanMarie Napolitano, director of human resources, at Bookkeeper360. “I was very honored to be asked to present the diplomas to the graduates. Sponsoring CCI over the last few months has touched my heart in a way that words can not explain. This program takes blessings from the dogs and their owners and creates a gift. A gift I can be part of in a very small way,” said Ms. Napolitano.
