For 34 years, Fort Worth CPAs have been the spirit of Christmas for many Fort Worth families. In 2023, Santaccountants will benefit children in the daycare program at the Center for Transforming Lives and the students in Como at HOPE Farm. Some of these kids are homeless, some live below the poverty line, and some have socio-economic challenges. Santaccountants bring a set of clothes and a toy, making sure all experience the joy of the season. More about our program recipients below.

On collection days, numerous Chapter members temporarily relinquish their office space. Drew Madsen, featured above, believes that this minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for the chance to profoundly influence numerous lives in such a positive way, especially during the holiday season!
