ACE Cash Express Supports Mission to Advocate for People with Down Syndrome
This year, ACE Cash Express’ annual Give A Little Campaign raised $18,358 in support of the National Down Syndrome Society’s (NDSS) mission to be the leading human rights organization for all individuals with Down syndrome.
“We’re proud to support causes that impact the communities where we work and that our employees are passionate about,” said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at ACE.
The Give A Little Campaign is a national in-store fundraiser that supports charities that are chosen by ACE employees. ACE stores in the Northeastern U.S. chose to support NDSS and raised $18,358, thanks to the generosity of employees and customers.
“We are beyond grateful for our partnership with ACE Cash Express,” said NDSS President and CEO Sara Hart Weir. “Not only does their support provide NDSS with funds to further our important mission, but they also raise awareness across the country about our organization and promote the importance of inclusion across all aspects of society.”
The 2017 Give A Little Campaign provided more than $248,000 to charities across the country, including: AdoptAClassroom.org, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, Autism Speaks, Back on My Feet, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, and The Coalition Against Pediatric Pain. This fundraiser is a part of ACE’s charitable-giving program, the ACE Community Fund, which has donated more than $11 million to organizations throughout the nation since 2004.
