OXFORD, Miss. -- Security Credit Services (SCS), a nationally recognized and trusted investment firm that specializes in purchasing receivables, also holds a passion for serving their local community and those in need. Members of the SCS team have made a point to do their part by volunteering at The Pantry, a non-profit organization that has been providing food essentials to Oxford-area residents for 40 years.
To get involved, employees of SCS offer their availability to their office manager, who can schedule them to work a half-day in the office, spending the rest of their time volunteering.
“The Pantry has been such a great experience, it truly does feel amazing to help others who are in need,” said Latisha Nash, an employee at Security Credit Services. “Everyone involved is so motivated to be a part of a great cause that helps out so many people.”
The Pantry accepts both food and monetary donations, the latter being utilized to purchase items from the Mid-South Food Bank in Memphis. Additionally, they receive support from the Mississippi Food Network and the federally funded CARES program. Food assistance is available to many types of families, especially those in lower-income households. The Pantry has adapted to the challenges that COVID-19 has presented, offering bags of prepared goods to feed a family for a week.
“The Pantry provides a wonderful service, and I am glad to see many of us here at Security Credit Services participating,” said William Alias III, CEO, SCS. “I look forward to continuing our involvement.”
