PRA Group's Tennessee Regional Office Donates Nearly $20,000 to Habitat for Humanity Affiliate
Tennessee Regional Office Employees Redouble Commitment to Habitat on Giving Tuesday
NORFOLK, Va., Dec. 8, 2021 – PRA Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRAA), a global leader in acquiring and collecting nonperforming loans, is proud to present the upcoming Dream Builders New Year’s Eve Celebration and Auction in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Jackson, Tennessee Area Inc.
In addition to the event sponsorship, PRA Group’s Tennessee Regional Office employees leveraged the corporation’s matching program to raise an additional $7,000 for the local Habitat chapter’s regular programming on Giving Tuesday, bringing the total donation to nearly $20,000 this quarter.
Hosted on Friday, Dec. 31, at Hub City Brewing, Habitat’s Dream Builders event will feature dinner, live music, games, a silent auction, and a midnight champagne toast. All proceeds will directly support the local Habitat’s mission of uniting people to build homes, communities and hope.
“We have always been avid supporters of Jackson Habitat, and the work they do has only become more essential as the ongoing pandemic continues to wear down on our community’s resources,” said Sean Garrett, Vice President of Operations. “I am proud of our local team for rallying to take PRA Group’s gift one step further, and I am grateful to work for a company that supports the causes about which we are passionate. It’s great to know we can count on PRA Group to ensure our gift will make a real impact.”
The donation comes following PRA Group’s debut of a new Giving Tuesday corporate matching challenge. This year, PRA Group doubled all matches made on Giving Tuesday, tripling each employee gift made in accordance with the program’s guidelines.
“PRA Group has been a great partner throughout the hardships served by the pandemic,” said Andrea Hudgins, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Jackson, Tennessee Area Inc. “As families continue to struggle with affordable housing and housing prices continue to rise, it is crucial for us to have generous corporate partners like PRA Group who are invested in the communities in which they work and live, making affordable housing a priority in their neighborhood.”
