“PLS is honored to support ongoing breast cancer research and care through our relationship with AVON 39,” stated Dan Wolfberg, co-president, PLS Financial Services. “We believe that it is important to build lasting partnerships with organizations that support issues that have impacted our customers, employees and their families.”

Over the last five years, PLS has supported walkers in Houston, Chicago, Boston, Santa Barbara, and New York by hosting cheering stations along the 39.3 mile-long route in these cities. Additionally, this year walkers were invited to take a mini-break at the official PLS Rest Stop, strategically located along the 39.3 mile-long route in Houston. For the first time, walkers were able to take a short break, grab refreshments and recharge before they continued on the route. Additionally at the PLS Rest Stop, they had access to a first aid station and portable restrooms.

Community involvement and engagement has become a pillar of PLS’s ongoing business strategy. PLS is committed to being a good community partner, by partnering with a number of non-profit organizations as part of the national #GivingTuesday initiative. PLS has been a part of this global day of giving for the past two years. To date, PLS associates have volunteered over 5,000 hours of service to non-profit and community based organizations across the United States.

“We understand how important it is to be a part of an important global initiative,” stated Bob Wolfberg, co-president, PLS Financial Services. “#GivingTuesday is a day where our entire system rallies together to support our customers and the communities in which they live.”
