Planting trees and helping kids

May 14, 2015
Last weekend a team of KPMG Baltics employees planted approximately 9,000 pine trees in Amata district. KPMG employees with their families and friends have been organizing the tree planting event for several consecutive years and will certainly continue this tradition.

As a long-standing supporter, KPMG also continues its charity work for Rauda Boarding School, a school for children with special needs. KPMG employees together with students from Riga Stradins University (RSU) and the University of Latvia (LU) visited the school on April 23.

RSU and LU students and KPMG staff entertained the children by teaching some basketball tricks and dancing, as well as working with paper and glue. The visitors were also pleased to assess the physiotherapy room that was recently created with a financial support from the KPMG firm and donations of KPMG employees. Several colleagues went to Rauda boarding for the first time. The visit deepened friendships, provided more insight into the topical issues of special schools in Latvia, as well as generated a lot of positive energy for everyone involved.

KPMG team of 65 runners participated in Riga Marathon all together reaching 732 km. The same amount in euro will be donated to charity.
