J.C. Christensen & Associates, Inc. (JCC), an ARRAY Services Group company, along with 14 other organizations in the collection industry, participated in fundraising this spring to contribute to the ACA International Foundation scholarship program.
JCC employees raised $1,662.75, and with a corporate match of $1,000.00, a total of $2,662.75 went to support Financial Literacy. Proceeds are used to fund $10,000.00 in scholarships which the ACA awards to four individuals who work in or are affiliated with the collections industry.
JCC utilizes this week to conduct its annual ACA Code of Ethics Training and has each collector recommit to the Collector Pledge. The company takes this opportunity to educate and remind employees about the ACA and Financial Literacy, and plans activities to get employees interested and involved.
Sales of healthy snacks, ‘throw-back’ candy, and pizza, paying for casual days, and a raffle for a reserved parking spot were some fun activities that JCC employees participated in during financial literacy awareness week.
Becky Pelkey, ACA-certified Training Manager at JCC, spent time in a local high school talking to 11th and 12th graders about the collection industry and how it helps the economy. “The sessions were very interactive,” she said, “and the feedback I received was positive!” She also discussed how teenagers can use credit responsibly and things they can do now to help them be successful in the future.
