It’s nice to be nice to the nice.
Keeping up with AFC’s philanthropic goals, we have again donated $15,000 worth of much-needed school supplies to underprivileged children throughout Illinois. We have again purchased school supply kits from “Back 2 School Illinois“, a 501(c)3) non-profit, and have given our store managers the task of finding local groups and organizations that will best assist in making sure these valuable tools to those that need it most.
Delivery dates are being solidified throughout the state, but some stores have already made their deliveries.
Store Manager Stacey in Granite City said, “I just got back from taking our back to school kits to The Children’s Home and all I can say is that in the years we have donated these kits I have never had anyone be as thankful as this place. My heart is so happy right now. When the education director and her assistant opened the boxes and saw everything that was in them we all about started to cry. Still, have goosebumps.“
In Belleville, Illinois store manager Kelly teamed up with Catholic Urban Programs in East St. Louis. They will distribute the school supplies within their shelter for homeless women and children, and also through their after school program.
That is what it is all about. America’s Financial Choice is not just a payday loan or auto title loan company. We are part of 20 communities throughout Illinois. We are staffed with people like you that understand your needs and concerns. If you would like to donate time or money to these organizations just click on the links above. If you know of a local organization that assists underprivileged children, send an email to AFCcharity@afchoice.com and we will look into them for next year.
