A firm with a big heart

One of the many reasons that PKM is a best place to work includes the firm’s active involvement in the community.  Each quarter, PKM selects a charity to support with our “Jeans Friday” donations.  The charities are nominated by our employees, the cause is near and dear to the heart of someone at PKM.  Each Friday, PKM employees have the privilege of wearing jeans to the office if they contribute $5 to our charity of the quarter.  At the end of the quarter, we add up all of the employee contributions and PKM matches the contributions.  We’ve been able to make a big impact through these donations to several worthwhile causes.

Every year we also organize a donate drive around the holidays.  For the past two years, we have collected children’s pajamas and books for the Pajama Program, which collects and delivers warm sleepwear and books to children in need.

In addition to donations to charities, PKM has frequently been involved in charity events around the community.  This past spring we had several employees including two of our Partners run in the Pass the Torch 5K/10K presented by Georgia State University’s Beta Alpha Psi to benefit the Global Impact Project whose mission is to provide a free, quality college education to motivated Kenyan women.  Not only did this event raise money for a great cause, but we had a lot of fun participating in it.

These are just a few of the things that PKM does to support our community and charitable organizations around the world.  I am so proud to be part of a firm with such a big heart!
