During Collectors Challenge month in April, employees of North American Credit Services found many

Bunton, Sr, CEO and chairman NACS and Medical Services, Inc. “Providing tools and places of education provide hope and clarity for all involved.” 

Charity Challenge Hot Dog Picnic and People’s Choice Chili Cook-Off Competition as well as through offering casual dress days. For a $3 ticket donation, employees were provided a hot dog picnic pack for the picnic and a $5 donation for the chili cook-off allowed employees the opportunity to cast a personal vote for the top employee chili chef. A dozen employees entered the competition to support the cause of scholarship opportunities through the ACA International Education Foundation.

Employees also made donations to dress casual in the office for up to 30 days and chances to win drawings. 

Money raised from the month-long Collectors Charity Challenge events allows the ACA International
Education Foundation to expand and increase financial literacy initiatives through research, education, job training, and public advocacy.
