Rent-A-Center Gives Back

Rent-A-Center Employees Donate Toys to Give-A-Gift

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County in Texas is on a mission to provide safety, healing and justice for children across the community who are victimized by abuse or neglect. They work in collaboration with law enforcement and Child Protective Services to help more 3,300 children and their families each year, free of charge.

During the holidays, the Children’s Advocacy Center works with the community to provide hundreds of holiday gifts to these abused and neglected children. Through our Give-A-Gift campaign, Rent-A-Center coworkers were able to spread some of our holiday cheer by donating over $1,000 in cash and piling hundreds more presents under our tree. We’re honored to be able to partner with CACCC and bring holiday happiness to children and families across our community.

The inaugural program became a national store-based fundraising campaign aimed at helping food banks, and in the years since its inception, Rent-A-Center patrons have made a huge difference. Last year, stores raised $50,000 that was distributed to food banks across 39 regions. And in the last three years, Rent-A-Center has donated more than $180 million toward fighting hunger—but there’s plenty of room to do more.Read Story
