We have a brand new office here at American Profit Recovery. New walls, desks, chairs, conference rooms and new phones. Everything here looks great at this collection agency. So why did our staff spend the summer in jeans?
We were raising money for charity of course!
Every summer we run our annual Summer Charities of Choice program where we raise money for a bunch of nonprofit organizations. And we raise the bulk of our funds by paying for the option to dress casual in the office. We conduct a number of other activities to have fun and raise money but most of the cash is raised by dressing casual.
What’s different about this charitable initiative is that it is spearheaded by our staff. All the charities we send money to are nominated by our team members. This year our team raised close to $3,000 by dressing in jeans and a few other funs activities during our Employee Week.
Each year our staff is asked to nominate and select charities we want to raise money for. And they have picked charities in a wide range of service offerings. From local sports organizations, cancer charities and other worthy causes, our team has been responsible for raising close to $20,000 over the past several summers for some great organizations.
Here is a list of the charities we are sending checks to this week. All nominated by our dedicated staff!
