UAFS Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) partnered with the Western District of the Arkansas Society of Certified Public Accountants (ARCPA) to collect food donations for the UAFS Lion Pride Pantry.
The Day of Service project, which took place Sept. 27, joined BAP officers with representatives of four accounting firms in the community: BKD, Landmark CPA, Potts & Company, and Lawrence, Schluterman, and Schwartz.
The purpose of this event was to accumulate enough non-perishable food items to donate to the newly opened Lion Pride Pantry on campus. The initiative collected enough donations to fill up the available shelves in the pantry.
The officers of BAP got to meet with the accounting firms personally. Participants valued the experience of giving back to the community and to UAFS students.
Beta Alpha Psi is an international honor organization for financial information students and professionals with more than 300,000 members worldwide. Typically accounting and finance students most appreciate the organization's emphasis on the profession.
