EUBANK, BETTS, HIRN, WOOD, PLLC GIVES COOKBOOK PROCEEDS TO GATEWAY RESCUE MISSION
(Jackson, MS) Anyone who has a loved one or friend who is an accountant knows that food is a very important part of "Tax Season." Accounting firms provide lunch and/or dinner to employees who work long hours preparing tax returns before the April 15 deadline.
Now add in the fact that Eubank, Betts, Hirn, Wood, PLLC feels that giving back to the community is very important and you will understand why creating a cookbook for charity was a good idea.
Eubank & Betts Best, Recipes You Can Count On has 100 pages of recipes provided by Eubank & Betts' staff, family and friends who generously contributed their favorite ones. Some of the recipes included are treasured family keepsakes and some are new; however, they all reflect the love of good cooking.
All proceeds from the sell of the cookbook went to Gateway Rescue Mission. The Mission offers life-changing hope in the Gospel of Jesus Christ to homeless men, women and children through programs to deliver food, shelter, counseling and discipleship.
