CHICAGO, Ill. -- Commercial Collection Agencies of America recently announced that through its initiative, Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back, a portion of the proceeds of its recently held meeting in Atlanta, Georgia has been given to the Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses.

At the general membership meeting, attendees offered overwhelming support to this worthy initiative and enthusiastically suggested charitable organizations to which the association should donate.

Since 1979 the Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses have been called “home” by more than 46,000 families with ill and injured children receiving medical care nearby. The Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. They believe that when a child is hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.

“We are humbled to be able to support the endeavors of the Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses in our own small way. Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back was uniquely created by the Board of Directors in order for the Association to offer assistance to those in need,” commented Executive Director, Annette M. Waggoner. She continued, “Commercial Collection Agencies of America has also been fortunate enough to donate a portion of the profits from previous meetings to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Blessings in a Backpack and The ALS Association-Greater Chicago Chapter.”
