The donation was sent to the Houston Food Bank on Thursday as an effort to aid in disaster relief from Hurricane Harvey.

"JHM is no stranger to helping out the community, whether that is local in Chattanooga or beyond. It is a mission of the partners and staff at JHM to donate time, money and resources when possible. The firm believes their obligation and calling as a business is to step up in times of need. 
JHM is a Chattanooga-based CPA firm, celebrating their 40th anniversary in business this year,' officials said.
