Rent-A-Center Cares
RAC Cares
Rent-A-Center provides our hard-working customers with choice and opportunity. Through flexible payment options, we are able to offer worry-free access to products and services that improve quality of life and bring our customers added comfort and convenience.

Our charitable giving efforts are aligned with that same desire to help families thrive. We put our values into action by supporting causes that give families peace of mind and offer children opportunities that will help them reach their potential.

Here's how we work to improve lives in the communities we serve:
We believe that everyone should have access to nutritious food, so we sponsor and raise funds for programs that provide hunger relief.

Not always visible to others, food insecurity is a reality in virtually every community. One in seven people in the U.S. do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of nutritious food; it’s a devastating source of anxiety that can also serve as a barrier to other opportunities.

Since 2002, Rent-A-Center has supported hunger relief efforts. Each September our stores collect cash donations earmarked for hunger-relief organizations. At our Plano, Texas corporate headquarters, coworkers hold an annual spring fundraiser benefiting the North Texas Food Bank. The tradition began in 2003 and has raised over $900,000 in donations to NTFB's fight against hunger in Dallas and 12 surrounding counties. In 2016 our focus on hunger relief led us into a new partnership with Minnie's Food Pantry where Rent-A-Center donated over $22,000 in cash and merchandise while coworkers sorted and packed food boxes for those in need.

Every family deserves the opportunity to be the best they can be, and that is why we support organizations that provide family and youth services.

Education
Every child deserves the opportunity to receive a good education. That’s why, in 2004, we established the Make A Difference Scholarship, which awards $60,000 annually to customers, their children and our coworkers’ children who are pursuing an undergraduate college or university degree. We also promote scholarship opportunities made available by the Association of Progressive Rental Organizations \(APRO\).

Mentoring
Strong, enduring, positive relationships can make all the difference for children facing adversity. It’s a natural fit that Rent-A-Center supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of America whose local affiliates impact youth across the country by matching children with positive role models who will make a lasting impact on their lives. To date, we’ve contributed more than $400,000. Rent-A-Center also supports Junior Achievement USA by participating in “JA in a Day” every year - helping inspire and prepare children to be productive citizens who will positively impact their community.

Family Services
Additionally, Rent-A-Center supports the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County, a center that provides safety, healing and justice to over 3,000 abused children. Our coworkers hold annual toy drives during the holidays and help raise money to support the organization. To date, Rent-A-Center has donated more than $300,000.

We support organizations that help communities and families recover from disasters.

Disaster can strike anyone at any time. Rent-A-Center partners with the American Red Cross to provide emergency assistance to families who have lost everything in a disaster. For more than 130 years the American Red Cross has served millions in the U.S. by making sure they receive the care and comfort they deserve during a time of crisis. Rent-A-Center has donated more than $50,000 to date and will continue its support.

In addition to monetary donations our employees routinely roll up their sleeves to donate life-saving blood at American Red Cross blood drives. The American Red Cross helps transform despair into hope for survivors of devastating disasters, and that’s why we are grateful to donate to the American Red Cross.
