ACE Cash Express Provides Scholarships to Students in South Texas
ACE is providing scholarships to 18 college-bound students after raising $18,460 for the Stars Scholarship Fund during its annual Give A Little Campaign.
"I can’t thank our employees and customers enough for their generosity and hard work during our fundraiser," said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at ACE. "We really value the importance of giving back to the community, and we are especially proud to support organizations that focus on providing education."
The Give A Little Campaign is an in-store fundraiser that supports charities across the nation, which are chosen by ACE employees. Employees in South Texas chose to support the Stars Scholarship Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships to students in South and West Texas.
"We are so grateful for our partnership with ACE Cash Express," said Laura Escamilla, Executive Director of Stars. "Their support allows more students to have the opportunity to get a college education."The 2015 Give A Little Campaign is providing more than $447,000 to charities across the country, including: AdoptAClassroom.org, Autism Speaks, Back on My Feet, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, National Down Syndrome Society, Providence House and Stars Scholarship Fund. This fundraiser is a part of ACE’s charitable-giving program, the ACE Community Fund, which has donated more than $9.7 million to organizations throughout the nation since 2004.
