Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 09, 2011
Smartcomm is a small business with fewer than 30 employees. When news hit that tornadoes had ripped through Joplin, MO and its surrounding areas, it was evident that Smartcomm employees were concerned. Being physically far from the damage, one employee suggested that the staff make a monetary donation, if possible, to help all the tornado victims.
Smartcomm’s payroll and employee benefits manager, Stephanie Lewis, did some research on how a donation could be made directly through an employee’s paycheck, as is done with medical or 401K deductions. With the help of Scottsdale-based AccuPay, LLC, Stephanie was able to easily deduct the desired amount from each employee's paycheck that he or she wished to donate.
In a joint effort, Smartcomm CEO Carole Downs and Smartcomm President Pendleton Waugh agreed to match all donations made by employees for this cause. With their help, and Accupay’s hassle free system, a total of $3,460 was raised and sent to the American Red Cross. In times of crisis, every dollar counts, and Smartcomm hopes that other companies, large and small, will look into helping those in need via a similar method that is simple and convenient.
