Bring Your Child to Work
Agawam, MA (Vocus) August 14, 2008
The demand for credit counseling has risen over the last few months as the sub-prime lending crisis continues to plague the economy. To meet the needs of the public, Cambridge Credit Counseling Corp. has instituted extended service hours to help those scrambling to make sound financial decisions. These longer hours have required that many of Cambridge's personnel rearrange their schedules to accommodate helping those in the community -- taking time away from their families to do so. As Cambridge is a family orientated organization, President Christopher Viale wanted to show employee's children the fantastic work their moms and dads are doing in the community.
"Our office has been inundated with calls from people who desperately need advice in managing their financial challenges. In an effort to meet callers' needs, my staff volunteered to change their hours," stated Viale. "Our employees have really stepped up to the plate in developing our extended service schedule -- Monday through Thursday 8:00 am -10:00pm, and Friday and Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time."
The "Bring Your Child to Work" event will be held on Friday, August 15 and recognizes employee sacrifice to help the community. Throughout the day, children will have the opportunity to shadow their parents as they work to help individuals manage the stress that financial burdens create. The day itself will not be all work. "This day is a celebration of our family helping other families throughout America," continued Viale. The employees at Cambridge have devised a fun filled day of arts and crafts, computer gaming and movies. The centerpiece of the event is the Pizza Picnic which will play host to a scavenger hunt, egg spoon, three legged and potato sack races and a rousing game of wiffle ball.
"Cambridge has undergone a lot of changes over the last decade, and our employees have hung in there with us. This is a small thank you to them, and their families, for believing in the wonderful work Cambridge has done in servicing over 2 million Americans in their quest to become debt free," concluded Viale.
