Each year since 2003, Rent-A-Center team members at the company’s Texas headquarters have campaigned on behalf of the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) to help fight hunger at the local level. In 2013, NTFB recognized RAC as Corporate Innovator of the Year for its creative mix of campaign programming, which has raised more than $625,000 for NTFB to date — the equivalent of providing 1.8 million meals to families in North Texas.
When Rent-A-Center was founded in 1986, the company’s goal was to provide hardworking people with an ownership path to items designed to enrich their lives. In 2008, RAC launched Random Acts of Caring, focused on random acts of kindness through various nonprofit organizations throughout the United States. The results have been money, gift cards, and merchandise for benefit-deserving groups.
