In April of 2020, Riney Hancock CPAs celebrated our 47th year of providing accounting and financial services and we were fortunate enough to continue to do so during the uncertain and difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic. We knew our communities were struggling and we wanted to help. In honor of our 47th year anniversary, and to help support the communities where we operate, Riney Hancock CPAs committed to spending $47,000 during the reminder of the year. These funds were used in a variety of ways to benefit as many people and businesses as we could. Here are a few of the donations we made during this time.

We provided 150 boxed lunches from Great Harvest Bread Company to the Daniel Pitino Shelter soup kitchen, helping two essential businesses at the same time. One working daily to feed our community and one that serves meals and provides shelter to the homeless.

We provided 330 meals from Old Hickory Barbeque to the Salvation Army CANteen Ministry. This Ministry was born from the 2018 water main break where teens from the Salvation Army summer program drove around and handed out bottled water. Since that time, a group of teenagers get together to prepare and hand out meals to under served parts of our community. They are now serving over 300 people on Tuesday and Thursday nights with a large part being kids.

We provided all of the employees of the Oasis Shelter with $50 Briarpatch gift cards. The Oasis Shelter is a domestic violence program for battered women and their dependent children, providing a safe place to escape domestic violence.

We donated $1,000 to the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Food Bank in Evansville, IN.

We provided 150 box lunches to three Evansville, IN hospitals from the Granola Jar.  St. Vincent Evansville Hospital and two of the Deaconess Hospital locations.

Steve Mudd, shareholder in-charge of our Evansville office, and Vicki Mersereau, administrative assistant, delivered meals to the medical staffs at both hospitals.

We provided gift cards to the teachers of Owensboro Catholic Schools, Owensboro Public Schools, and Daviess County Public Schools in honor of teacher appreciation week.  Along with several local businesses (Old National Bank, Weed Man Lawn Care, Hagan’s Outdoor Equipment, Thompson Homes, EM Ford, Regional Land Title Co., Hartz Contracting, Our Technology Group, and Evergreen Lawn Care) Riney Hancock help provide 1,216 teachers with $15 gift cards from a variety of local restaurants (Old South Bar-B-Q, Niko’s Bakery, Lee’s Famous Recipe, Beef O’Brady’s, Great Harvest, The Miller House, Colby’s, Donato’s, Old Hickory, and BriarPatch).

We provided items to stock the Little Free Pantry at Germantown Park and  made a donation for supplies in the future. In 2019, CYP’s community development committee installed the pantry at Germantown Park to serve as a take what you need food pantry of nonperishable items. CYP works with First Christian Church to keep the pantry stocked.

We donated supplies for Housing Kits for Aurora Evansville , a nonprofit organization in Evansville, IN, that strives to prevent and end homelessness in the Evansville community. The Aurora team provides many services for those who are homeless or are at risk of being homeless in the community. Their services include a Homeless Outreach Team to provide shelter and supplies to the homeless in the Evansville area, a Re-Entry program to help anyone released from institutions successfully transition back into the community and off the streets, rental assistance for those with disabilities, and much more. Aurora impacts more than 1,600 individuals each year. This number includes children, men, women, veterans, the re-entry population, refugees, and individuals with disabilities. The kits are used to provide a homeless family moving off the streets into a home with cookware, silverware, and basic cleaning supplies.
