The state unit is collecting donations to help industry employees and families adversely impacted by the devastating storm.


The American Collectors Association of Texas recently established a Disaster Relief Fund in support of the victims of Hurricane Harvey who are enduring unprecedented hardship and tragedy stemming from the impact of the storm.

“The financial costs of responding to the broad impact of the crisis are only just now beginning to be quantified and, as members of the credit and collection industry, we can help do our part to support those impacted by the storm,” said Tom Morgan, executive director of ACA of Texas.

As stories and news continue to document the generosity and goodwill of how people in Texas and throughout the United States are supporting those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, ACA of Texas is doing its part to help those in need and asks for your support in donating to the Disaster Relief Fund.

Contributions to the ACA of Texas Disaster Relief Fund will be used to directly support families and individuals working in our industry who have been adversely impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

A generous benefactor of ACA of Texas has pledged a dollar-for-dollar matching gift for up to $100,000 in contributions from donors who help this cause.
