Donation helps the homeless in Greater New Haven

NEW HAVEN - Employees of BlumShapiro recently donated $2,500 to Columbus House, which provides service and shelter for homeless people.
“We value our relationship with BlumShapiro and their employees and are very grateful for the contribution. Their continued support of Columbus House’s work is crucial as we provide hope to so many in our community,” Columbus House Development Director John Brooks said, in a statement.

The BlumShapiro employees decided to forgo their annual company celebration for the third year and instead donate funds to non-profit organizations throughout Connecticut, according to a statement.
“For nearly 30 years, Columbus House has been home to many who have experienced homelessness from throughout the region, providing shelter, support services and housing. We, like the thousands they serve every year, are extremely grateful for their invaluable services,” BlumShapiro principal Mike Hanlon said in the statement.

Blum is not a great place to work. They over hire and fire. Carl Johnson is heartless. I wish I could get out of this place.

Blum's product is pretty poor. We use to work with them for several years. They rarely returned phone calls and were way over priced. We took our audit to another regional CPA firm and have been very happy.
