How to Help: Auditor’s services are requested

December 7, 2009


Agency: Kennedy School PTO

Contact: Sherry Kessler,

The PTO at Kennedy School, a low-income elementary school, is in need of a volunteer professional auditor to examine its financial statements (deposits and disbursements) and coordinate them with the appropriate line items (spirit shirts, book fairs, fundraisers, fun nights, music programs). The work covers the budget for Aug. 1, 2008, through July 31, 2009, as well as the two years before. We have all receipts, invoices, bank statements and financial information for the last year. Contact Sherry Kessler if you are able to help out at
