In 2005, in the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, APRO members contributed more than $190,000 to help rent-to-own employees recover from the storms’ devastation.
Unfortunately, natural disasters have become all too common. APRO’s membership understands that we must be ready to help our family of RTO employees at any time, and that a rapid response is critical. So APRO established a permanent mechanism to help our members in need – the RTO [Relief To Our] Employees Disaster Relief Fund.
The fund is administered through APRO’s charitable foundation, so all contributions are tax-exempt, and every dollar goes directly to RTO employees in need.
One-time donations are welcome, but in order to have permanent and ongoing funding, APRO urges all member companies to implement a voluntary payroll-deduction program for all employees – with small contributions encouraging universal support. APRO is happy to provide companies with a paycheck stuffer template they can use to promote employee participation. For more information, please email Jill McClure at email@example.com.
“You cannot know what a difference your contributions have made for my family. We appreciate everything so much and will always remember the kindness our APRO family has shown us during this difficult time.”
