Business supporting local community has always been important to PRC. This year our employees showed an even stronger commitment to helping those less fortunate. It may have been due to the hardships we have faced in our local economy. Or it may be that as part of the debt collections industry our employees are constantly exposed to people from all regions of the country and all walks of life that are struggling financially. Whatever the reason, PRC employees went above and beyond this past holiday season, showing incredible generosity.
For the last few years, PRC has supported our military service members and their families through Operation Homefront. This is a wonderful organization, and it has been a rewarding and uplifting experience for our staff to support those who are fighting for our freedoms.
In addition to PRC business supporting local community Operation Homefront in 2010, our employees continued to expand their efforts in supporting our local community by making donations to The Durham Rescue Mission. Our employees are always excited to support organizations that are right here in our own backyard. The Durham Rescue Mission provides food, clothing, shelter, vocational training, continuing education, job placement, permanent supportive housing, and counseling 365 days a year. With the support of individuals, businesses, civic groups, religious organizations, foundations, and grants, they have been helping the needy and homeless since 1974. In our first fundraiser for this organization, PRC raised more than $1,850!
Finally, PRC continued its business supporting local community work for SAFEchild. SAFEchild is a Wake County nonprofit whose mission is to prevent child abuse in Wake County by helping adults and children create nurturing environments free from abuse and neglect. During the 2010 holiday season, instead of sending our Clients the normal Christmas goodies, PRC made donations to SAFEchild on their behalf.
We choose a different local charity each year. Check out our community page to get the latest updates.
