The United States Organizations for Bankruptcy Alternatives, a trade association dedicated to the advancement of consumer protection in the debt settlement industry, will be helping make the holiday season a bit more joyful this year for families in need.
Faced with recession woes, housing bailouts, stock market tumbles, and growing job losses, many Americans cannot afford gifts or even food for their family this holiday season. USOBA has teamed up with Communities In Schools of Central Texas in an effort to ensure that Texas families are provided for this winter.
According to Alissa Magrum, CIS of Central Texas spokesperson, The USOBA donation to the Communities In Schools of Central Texas Holiday Assistance Program will provide much needed help to their students and families during this Holiday season.
The donation will be used to purchase gift cards so that parents can purchase food, basic needs items and small gifts for their own children and families. “
“Thanks to generous community partners, such as USOBA, we can make the Holiday season a little brighter for students and families served by Communities In Schools of Central Texas,” Magrum said.
