Progrexion, a company dedicated to ensuring fair and accurate consumer credit reports, is hosting a one-year anniversary celebration today (Sept. 16) at 10 a.m. at its call center at 20620 N. 19th Ave. in Phoenix. The public is invited to bring canned goods and other non-perishable food that will be donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance as part of national Hunger Action Month. Those who donate in the month of September to the Progrexion location will be entered into a drawing for a pair of Pro Bowl tickets. Tickets will be awarded the first week of October.
At the event, Progrexion CEO Jeffrey Johnson will present a large check to St. Mary’s President and CEO, Beverly Damore. The company’s 310 Arizona employees collected cash and food over the summer in order to donate to the local nonprofit in September, as part of national hunger awareness campaign.
“We are so grateful to our employees in Phoenix for being so generous with their time and money and for getting behind this important cause,” said Johnson. “I also want to congratulate them all in celebrating a successful first year. Our company has grown significantly this past year, and we will continue to support this and other important community causes as we continue to expand in Phoenix and beyond.”
“We’re very grateful to Progrexion for actively collecting food and cash to help provide for the two million Arizonans who are living at or below the Federal Poverty Guideline,” said Beverly Damore, president and CEO of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. “And, we encourage to the community to continue to donate through Progrexion and our other community partners throughout Hunger Action Month.”
Progrexion’s Phoenix location, which started out with 30 employees one year ago, has seen impressive growth, and is now looking to hire 135 more by the end of the year, bringing a total employee count to 445 employees. The company will have recruiter’s onsite at the celebration on Sept. 17 from 10am-4pm to accept resumes and applications from people who would like to work for this organization that prides itself in giving back to the community.
“One in five kids in the United States faces hunger, and Progrexion is proud to be engaged in efforts that truly make a difference in the communities in which we work and live,” added Johnson.
Progrexion and its affiliated brands, including Lexington Law and CreditRepair.com, comprise the nation’s largest consumer advocacy network and employ more than 2,100 people at locations in Utah, Idaho and Arizona. Progrexion’s associates in Utah and Idaho also conducted food and fund donation drives this summer and recently donated more than $73,000 to non-profits in those states.
