    Volunteers Keep Community Garden Beautiful

    Even as the temperatures begin to dip, there is plenty of work to be done at the Project Bloom community garden in East Islip, and a team of 10 accountants from the NextGen Committee stepped in recently to help.

    The garden, located at Brookwood Hall on Irish Lane, depends upon Keep Islip Clean volunteers to plant, weed, trim and generally maintain a lush area that includes vegetable beds, a children’s garden, memorial garden and greenhouse.

    The NextGen Committee, which is affiliated with the NYS Society of CPAs, is a support network that fosters professionalism and sense of community among young accountants through volunteerism. This is the third year that members of the group have volunteered through KIC for a fall project.

    501c3, community service organization.
