PLS Check Cashers donated ten computers to the Hazel Crest Senior Center, which sponsors educational, social and recreational programs for seniors. The computers, valued at $1,000, will be used for computer training programs at the Senior Center. PLS Check Cashers, located at 3164 W. 175th Street in Hazel Crest, is operated by Chicago-based PLS Financial Services, Inc.
"PLS is helping Hazel Crest seniors cross the 'digital divide' and learn new skills," says Hazel Crest Mayor Dr. Robert B. Donaldson. "This is another example of the business community's generous support of Hazel Crest and our seniors, and we thank PLS for its donation."
"PLS is dedicated to being a good neighbor in our neighborhoods," says Bob Wolfberg, PLS Co-President. "We are impressed with the fine work of the Hazel Crest Senior Center, and believe that the computers we're donating will help many members of the community stay active and connected." In 2006, PLS donated $1,000 to the Hazel Crest Senior Center to celebrate the grand opening of its Hazel Crest store.
