Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back

Commercial Collection Agencies of America recently announced that through its initiative, Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back, a portion of the proceeds of its annual meeting in Delray Beach, Florida has been given to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The Foundation was suggested by Commercial Collection Agencies of America’s colleague, Mike Ginsberg of Kaulkin Ginsberg, who participates in the annual Montgomery County MD Walk.  The Association’s Board endorsed the support immediately after learning that the Foundation’s mission is  to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide, as well as being the leading private funder of suicide research.

At the general membership meeting, the Board shared the news with the members who overwhelmingly supported the donation, many of whom contributed personally, as well. 

Commercial Collection Agencies of America has also been fortunate enough to donate a portion of the profits from previous meetings to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Blessings in a Backpack, The ALS Association-Greater Chicago Chapter, The Red Cross, The Emily Stillman Foundation and the American Diabetes Association.  

“One of the biggest benefits of an association, such as ours, is the privilege to come together as colleagues, not only for education and networking, but to share in the initiative of doing good,” commented Annette M. Waggoner, Executive Director of Commercial Collection Agencies of America.  “The impact made through Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back, throughout the years is heartwarming and certainly a reflection of our compassionate and generous membership.”

The vision of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is to build a world without suicide.  With a nationwide network of seventy-six (76) chapters, with chapters in all fifty (50) states, their staff and volunteers work tirelessly to support those affected by suicide loss and deliver an array of education programs and resources.  For more information, please visit www.afsp.org
