Employees can donate fifty dollars and they will be allowed to dress casually every day of the month
Carrollton, TX (Vocus) August 28, 2010
The dress code at Certified Payment Processing (CPP) has taken on a much more casual look during the month of August. The employees at CPP, along with the two sales divisions, TransTech Merchant Group and Summit Merchant Solutions, are participating in the “Comfy Clothes Campaign,” an annual fundraiser for the American Heart Association.
“Employees can donate fifty dollars and they will be allowed to dress casually every day of the month,” say Tony Norrie, Vice President and General Manager. “We love helping the great work the Heart Association is doing, and our team enjoys the extra casual environment, especially in the Texas heat.”
Certified Payment Processing, a leading provider of electronic payment equipment for purchases made by debit and credit cards, has more than 300 employees in two Dallas area facilities—Carrollton and Richardson. Those who volunteer to participate are allowed to wear casual clothing not normally in the dress code policy, including shorts, t-shirts and sandals. Also during the month, important messages about heart health will be emphasized, using newsletters, e-mails and poster to provide the CPP team with useful tools for heart-healthy living.
CPP has been participating in this program for three years. “This year, seventy percent of CPP employees have signed up, and we expects to raise more than $11,000,” says Norrie. “Since we began our participation in the AHA fundraiser, we’ve raised over $16,500. It makes me very proud of our team and their willingness to support this great cause.”
From the American Heart Association website: Cardiovascular disease is the nation’s number one killer and nearly 35 percent of Dallas-area deaths each year are attributed to cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association (AHA) invests more than $132 million a year ($3.2 billion since 1949) in heart and stroke research. Since 1924, AHA has been working to improve health in local communities.
