The Season for Giving

RTO [Relief To Our] Employees Disaster Relief Fund

Since 2015, APRO has distributed more than $200,000 in disaster relief funds to employee members. 

Natural disasters occur at the most unexpected moments, creating a sudden need for relief. In 2019 (as of October 8), there have been 10 weather and climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each across the United States. These events included three flooding events, five severe storm events and two tropical cyclone events, according to The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). 2019 is the fifth consecutive year in which 10 or more billion-dollar weather and climate disaster events have affected the country.

Don’t wait for disaster to strike – give today, and help keep the fund ready for those unexpected moments.

APRO’s disaster relief fund, RTO [Relief To Our] Employees Disaster Relief Fund, is here for rent-to-own employees in need. APRO’s charitable foundation administers the fund so that all contributions are tax-exempt and every dollar raised will go directly to rent-to-own employees in need. 

The rent-to-own family has always been a family of generosity. Please contribute to the RTO Employees Disaster Relief Fund and encourage your employees to do the same. A small contribution makes a big difference.

If you are an APRO member in good standing and a natural disaster has impacted your company or employees, please contact Jill McClure at APRO to receive more information about applying for disaster relief assistance.
