Volunteering in the communities we do business in is a significant part of our firm's culture. Our partners and staff donate time and resources throughout the communities we serve in a variety of ways.
Day of Caring
S. Preston Douglas & Associates was proud to be a part of the Lumber River United Way's 2021 Day of Caring.

This event was held on Thursday, May 1, 2014 at Pinecrest Country Club. The proceeds from this event are used to provide funding for medical, nursing and allied health scholarships for residents from Robeson and surrounding counties.

CPA Day of Service
S. Preston Douglas & Associates, LLP was pleased to join Robeson Health Care Corporation and other businesses and organizations across North Carolina for the second annual Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Day of Service. This event was held on Friday, September 20, 2013 and gave CPAs the opportunity to give back to their communities through volunteer service with a charitable organization of their choice.
Our firm worked with Robeson Health Care Corporation to complete an exterior painting project at Grace Court, a supervised living facility for women and their children dealing with substance abuse issues. A group of 10 CPAs and staff members from the firm participated.
Our firm decided to work with Robeson Health Care Corporation because they provide a variety of preventative health care and substance abuse services vital to the residents of the area. “Our firm has been fortunate enough to serve clients in this area since 1941 and it is important for us to give back to the community,” said John Grissom, Partner.
The Day of Service is sponsored by the North Carolina Association of CPAs. Approximately 2,000 CPAs and staff members from throughout the state participated in this year’s event. The goal of the Day of Service is to allow CPAs to show their dedication to the cities and towns in which they live and to highlight the many ways they give back to their communities on a regular basis.
