KPMG Remembers 9/11

Yesterday was the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and memorials were held all over the country. Thousands of KPMG employees volunteered at over 200 non-profits to mark that tragic day including over 100 at PS 161 in New York and 70 at the wreath-laying ceremony at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Nothing more really needs to be said other than kudos to KPMG for their “Service of Remembrance.” Drop your own remembrances in the comments and if your firm marked the 10th anniversary in some way (aside from t-minus 4 days until the corporate tax filing deadline), let us know below or email us.
