Washington, DC (Aug. 13, 2019) – In support of communities where they have stores, ACE Cash Express, part of Populus Financial Group, has donated $10,000 to MenzFit, an organization which provides clothing assistance and financial literacy education to individuals seeking to enter the nation’s workforce. MenzFit’s primary mission is to ensure long-term gainful employment and financial fitness to low-income men in the Philadelphia, PA and Washington, DC areas.
"MenzFit is thrilled by the continuous support of ACE Cash Express. Their commitment to our program and services for more than a decade is exemplary. I applaud the partnership and look forward to future collaboration," says MenzFit Founder Rhonda Willingham.
Founded in 2001, with offices in Washington, DC and Philadelphia, PA, MenzFit is a non-profit organization whose client base is veterans, terminated or laid-off workers, recent immigrants, recovering addicts, the disabled, homeless, ex-offenders and public assistance recipients who are entering the workforce.
“ACE is proud to support MenzFit in their mission to provide resources for those entering or re-entering the job market,” said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President for Populus Financial Group. “This is another outstanding program supported by the ACE Community Fund to improve the cities where we have stores and the neighborhoods where our employees and customers live and work.”
MenzFit has been a partner of ACE Cash Express for 11 years as part of ACE’s corporate giving program, the ACE Community Fund. The ACE Community Fund is committed to empowering organizations that help children, provide education and promote financial literacy in the communities it serves.
