We raised $37,353 this year, which is an increase of more than $13,000 from last year.
Carrollton, Texas (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
For the past five years, Certified Payment Processing (CPP) has conducted a fundraiser for the American Heart Association, known as the "Comfy Clothes Campaign." Those who participate are allowed to wear casual clothing not normally in the dress code policy, including shorts, t-shirts and sandals.
The company, along with the two sales divisions, TransTech Merchant Group and Summit Merchant Solutions, usually sets aside the month of July and August for the fundraiser, but this year, it was extended to include all of September as well.
“Our staff anticipates this event,” say Tony Norrie, Vice President and General Manager of CPP. “They enjoy the relaxed dress code, especially in the Texas heat. And our company is honored to support the great work of the American Heart Association. We raised $37,353 this year, which is an increase of more than $13,000 from last year.”
CPP is a provider of credit card processing services and also leases point-of-sale terminals that quickly process all forms of payments: debit and credit card transactions, gift cards and checks. The products and services are designed to help businesses increase revenue, control costs, improve efficiency, enhance data security and provide their customers with the most popular payment methods. The company just released an all-in-one POS system that provides merchants with the ability to handle many of the financial aspects required to run a business efficiently. CPP has more than 300 employees in Carrollton, Texas, as well as hundreds of sales associates in the field throughout the country.
