With the 2017 tax season quickly coming to a close, CDL employees are gearing up to volunteer throughout South Florida. The volunteer events will take place in May and June, with additional fundraisers and service projects being scheduled through the end of the year.
For 31 years, CDL has been committed to serving the local community and making civic leadership an integral part of the Firm. CDL employees sit on non-profit boards and advisory committees, volunteer in the community and make contributions to charities throughout Palm Beach and Martin Counties. As “Team CDL” employees get ready to volunteer, we invite you to come out and support us.

CPA Day of Service/Armed Forces Day
The Veterans Affairs Medical Center – 7305 North Military Trail, West Palm Beach
Team CDL will trade in their shirts, ties and dresses for more comfortable-style clothing as they take on landscaping and beautifying projects around the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center.
