WIPFLI gives back to Rhinelander for Community Day Submitted: 09/26/2013
Story By Kalia Baker


RHINELANDER - WIPFLI accounting firm isn't just about crunching numbers—it wants to be a business that is dedicated to giving back. That's why every year it has "Community Day".

WIPFLI closed up shop and sent its employees out for a day of giving back. Volunteers split their time between painting and gardening with Downtown Rhinelander, Inc.

Randy Beard is a partner with Wipfli and has worked for the company for 35 years.

"The heart of community day is giving back," says Beard.

Giving back is exactly what Sally Latimer feels is important for a group like Downtown Rhinelander, Inc.

"I feel full of joy," shares Latimer. "When we found out that there were going to come, we were going-"yippie!--It's just so great, because it's something we need to do. And here they are doing it for us."

For 9 years, Community Day has helped a number non-profits in the Northwoods. Beard says WIPFLI likes being involved in service.

"I think the Northwoods community really shows how much they help various non-profits—activities, with all the events going on, and fundraising. It's very vibrant in that, and we want to be a part of that."

Community Day isn't limited to the office in Rhinelander. More than 1,100 Wipfli employees all across the Midwest--and even in Washington--donated their time to service Thursday.
