paintingEver wonder what accountants do when it’s not the busy season?

Apparently they’re still busy — doing good deeds.

A group of NextGen volunteers with the New York State Society of CPAs spent a recent day painting four trash receptacles for use in Town of Islip public parks.

Working with Keep Islip Clean, the volunteers came up with whimsical designs for four 55-gallon drums donated by Billy Hill of Rainbow Party Rentals.

Rainbow Party Rentals has provided drums for all the Keep Islip Clean painting projects.

According to Keep America Beautiful, which is Keep Islip Clean’s parent organization, studies show conclusively that cans sporting colorful designs greatly increase their use and reduce litter.nextgen-volunteer-group
