Fundraiser Momentum Continues as Company-wide Drives Get Underway

Collingswood, NJ – With its sixth annual No Debts for Vets Charity Fundraiser currently underway, ARMing Heroes (www.armingheroes.org), the collection industry’s charity for military veterans, today spotlighted two more ARM industry firms that have chosen to support the charity’s efforts in 2015. EOS USA (www.eos-usa.com), located in Norwell, MA, and F.H. Cann & Associates (www.fhcann.com), headquartered in North Andover, MA, will both hold company-wide fundraisers during the drive, which runs from September 11th through Veterans Day, November 11th every year.

As an incentive for company-wide participation, EOS USA is offering a dress-down day that allows employees to wear jeans in exchange for making a charitable contribution to the organization. Commenting on why the company has chosen to support vets through ARMing Heroes this year, EOS USA President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Leary stated, “We’re proud to participate in the ARMing Heroes charity drive as a way to support our vets and show our gratitude to the men and women of the armed forces who served our country. We are grateful for the sacrifices they made on our behalf, and this is one way we can show our sincere appreciation.”

F.H. Cann & Associates, a perennial supporter of ARMing Heroes, will again offer its employees the option of donating to the charity via payroll deductions during October and November. Additionally, company President and CEO Frank Cann has committed to matching contributions, just like last year. The company will also hold a raffle for employees, with half of the proceeds going to the raffle winner and the other half going to the charity. Rick Broady, F.H. Cann’s Chief Administrative Officer, commented, “We are honored to be part of ARMing Heroes, both as individuals and as a company. It’s such great cause, a way to give something back to those men and women who have honorably served our country and given so much of themselves. Being able to help these heroes get back on their feet is incredibly rewarding and humbling.”

ARMing Heroes relies on the generosity of ARM industry companies across the country to make this grant program possible. Incentivizing employees to give to this worthy cause in exchange for dress down days or for other benefits management might think of is one of the easiest ways for those in the collection industry to get involved. Interested companies can sign up to hold a drive here. Once you register, you can download the Employee Fund Drive Starter Kit which outlines in four easy steps what is needed to announce, manage, and complete a successful employee drive. Additionally, any company that holds a drive and donates to the charity will receive Donor Dog Tags to commemorate their support of military veterans. Stories of past grant recipients remind us all how rewarding this program can be.

The charity’s flagship No Debts for Vets Charity Fundraising Drive runs from September 11th through Veterans Day, November 11th every year, however tax-deductible donations are accepted at any time online at www.armingheroes.org and via mail to PO Box 353, Collingswood, NJ 08108, payable to ARMing Heroes.
