"The KPMG office in Short Hills has partnered with the Clean Ocean Action for the past two years for an annual Corporate Beach Sweep. The office loves participating in this event so much that I am asked throughout the year, when is the next Beach Sweep?! Our team has conveyed great joy and satisfaction in getting out doors while making a positive impact on the environment. The COA team is a passionate, dedicated and extremely knowledgeable group of professionals. We look forward to continuing our support for the COA!" - KPMG
