CCF Casual for a Cause
A special perk of being a Carrington Associate is the ongoing Casual for a Cause program. Donating part of your paycheck to CCF each pay period (a minimum $5, or more at your discretion) means you can wear casual clothing, including jeans, to work. The donations go to the CCF General Fund, which then directs grants and gifts to a variety of charitable causes suggested by you throughout the year.
It’s a popular program, monitored by each location’s HR department (if you’re wearing jeans in the office, be sure you’re enrolled). The top four Casual for a Cause participating locations are: Carrington Mortgage Services, Carrington Aviation, Carrington Mortgage Holdings, and Carrington Title Services.
During 2017 some $25,000 in donations from this program went to animal shelters affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Maria in Texas and Florida, including $5,000 each to the SPCA of Texas, Austin Pets Alive, Rescued Pets Movement (TX), First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FL), and the Jacksonville (FL) Humane Society. Someone Cares Soup Kitchen received $2,500. Special Olympics received $10,000. The Susan G. Komen organization received $9,255. A donation of $12,500 was made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. And a gift of $5,000 went to Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
Thank you to everyone who participates and donates through Casual for a Cause, and we hope to encourage more Associates to participate this year. It’s about much more than being able to wear jeans to work, and we’re grateful to everyone who contributes and helps CCF do more for the causes that are important to our Associates.
