Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 8, 2007
PLS Payday Loan Store began its annual Back-to-School Donation Program on August 1. During August, PLS customers are invited to nominate a local school to receive a donation. On Saturday, August 18, each PLS Payday Loan Store will hold a drawing, and the winning school will receive a $100 donation from its local PLS Payday Loan Store. Each PLS Payday Loan Store will also contribute five backpacks filled with school supplies to a local school or charity. In 2006, PLS donated $18,000 to community schools.
"Our annual Back-to-School program is one of several charitable campaigns that PLS sponsors every year," says Bob Wolfberg, Co-President of PLS Financial Services, which operates PLS Payday Loan Store. "At PLS, we are firmly committed to being a good neighbor in every community where we operate."
Each PLS Payday Loan Store location will also hold a drawing for five backpacks filled with school supplies. Entry forms for the backpack raffle are available at all PLS Payday Loan Store and PLS Auto Title Loans locations. No purchase is necessary to enter.
