Rent-A-Center Donates $20,000 To Atlanta Community Food Bank

Rent-A-Center today donated $20,000 to the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB). The donation comes on the heels of a recent donation of 10 freezers earmarked for partner agencies of the food bank.

The ACFB, which serves the food insecure through more than 600 partner nonprofits in 29 counties throughout metro Atlanta and north Georgia, 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.

"On behalf of the Atlanta Community Food Bank and our partner agencies, I’d like to thank Rent-A-Center for the wonderful donations the company has given us this month," said Sarah Fonder-Kristy, Vice President of Development for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. “The funds and freezers will truly help in our efforts to feed more people in our community.”

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
