Baker Tilly donates $15,000 to support individuals with disabilities at Allied Services

Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) recently presented Allied Services with a check for $15,000 to support the annual Team Allied Services campaign. This represents an annual corporate donation and funds raised by its employees in support of children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services.

Baker Tilly is a long-time supporter of Allied Services, serving as a multi-year, major sponsor of WNEP’s Team Allied Services. Since 2010, Baker Tilly has donated more than $150,000 to Allied Services and WNEP’s Team Allied Services. Over the past 9 years, the funds raised through the campaign have supported the purchase of devices that benefit patients of all ages with a wide range of challenges resulting from cerebral palsy, stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, lymphedema, dementia, and diabetes.

Team Allied Services has become an important annual campaign for our team members both locally and firm-wide and it is rewarding for us to see how the money we raise is used to advance the mission of one of the premier healthcare organizations in Northern Pennsylvania,” Mark Ross, Baker Tilly’s national healthcare practice leader, said.​

Baker Tilly is a leading advisory, tax and assurance firm with more than 3,700 employees across the globe, and is ranked as one of the top 15 largest accounting and advisory firms in the country.

This year, Baker Tilly will be represented by Eric Pochas, Director of Client Service at Baker Tilly Vantagen in Clarks Summit, PA. Eric has worked in employee benefits and health care operations for more than 20 years. He has been part of the Baker Tilly Vantagen team since 2000. As a member of Baker Tilly Vantagen’s senior leadership team, he maintains oversight responsibility for the benefits administration services provided to national employer clientele. This will be Eric’s second time representing Baker Tilly in the TCS New York City Marathon.

We are very fortunate to have Allied Services in our backyard, and I am immensely proud to be able to play a small part in helping to ensure its capable hands can continue to touch all the individuals and families who need them,” Pochas said.
