SquareTwo Financial, an ACA International member based in Denver, announced a $10,000 donation to the Colorado Red Cross in a fundraising effort to aid wildfire victims spearheaded by the companys employees.
SquareTwo Financial employees teamed up to start an online donation campaign with all donations going to the Colorado Red Cross wildfire relief effort. As the initiative gained momentum, both SquareTwo Financial and IMA, the companys insurance broker, agreed to match employee donations up to $10,000.
In addition to spearheading the donation effort, company employees created a video about the importance of lending a helping hand to fellow Coloradoans impacted by the recent wildfires. The video is gaining viral attention and has spurred other Denver-area companies to establish similar donation programs.
We go out of our way to hire only A-players, and its initiatives like this that reinforce why thats such an important priority for our company, said Paul A. Larkins, president and CEO of SquareTwo Financial. Yes, these employees are good at their jobs; but more importantly, theyre good neighbors, good friends and good people. Im proud to make this donation to the Colorado Red Cross on behalf of our employees and hope we can help make a small dent in the wildfire recovery efforts.
