Aaron's Rental Purchase Announces Community Outreach Program

02/23/1999

It is the Aaron Community Outreach Program (ACORP), which provides funds for communities. Aaron's stores that qualify by meeting performance goals will each receive $500 each month to be given to local charities selected by the store personnel.

"This is a way to give back to the communities in which we do business," said Ken Butler, President of the Aaron's Rental Purchase division. "It is the right thing to do for our own business and the people who support us every day. Giving back through ACORP is but a small way we can say thank you to each community, to show our sense of community pride. We are very excited about this program. In January of this year alone, our qualifying stores gave back over $13,000 to local charities. We see this figure growing every month."

Butler said the employees at each store will decide how to use the funds, "whether for a local food bank, church program, school project, family disaster or any other non-profit project."

Aaron Rents, Inc., based in Atlanta, has 430 stores in 33 states for the rental, rental purchase and sale of residential and office furniture and accessories, consumer electronics and household appliances. The Company manufactures furniture, bedding and accessories at eleven plants in Georgia, Florida and California.
