Rent-A-Center today donated $20,000 to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. The donation comes on the heels of a recent donation of 10 refrigerators earmarked for partner agencies of the food bank.
The Detroit-based food bank is one of eleven across the nation sharing in $250,000 worth of Rent-A-Center funding for hunger relief this year.
The donation is in addition to the grassroots hunger-relief campaign being staged across Rent-A-Center’s 3000-plus U.S. stores throughout September. Dubbed "Soup to Nuts" and in support of Hunger Action Month, this virtual food drive leverages Rent-A-Center stores as collection points for cash donations. The donated funds will be distributed to food banks across the country at the conclusion of the month-long campaign.
"We appreciate Rent-A-Center's continued support," said Gerry Brisson, Senior Vice President of Advancement of Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan.Rent-A-Center (NASDAQ: RCII), headquartered in Plano, Texas, operates more than 3,000 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico. The Company employs over 21,000 coworkers. Learn more at www.rentacenter.com.
