National Credit Adjusters, a Kansas-based debt buyer with branches in Arizona and Jamaica, is proud to share that we held our second annual volunteer day with ICAN, a local non-profit organization that helps support low-income families with free after school and summer day-care and educational programs, on May 19th.
The ICAN (Imagine, Connect, Achieve, and Network) and NCA teams gathered for a fun afternoon of dodgeball, arts & crafts, playing board games, and other various outdoor activities. This collaborative effort highlights NCA’s effort to both support and shed light on the significance of supporting community organizations throughout its local communities.
“We’ve been extremely excited and proud of the last two years’ volunteer work with ICAN. The ICAN staff is shorthanded at a 40:1 staff member to child ratio and therefore in need of our continued support. The event has been so rewarding for both the NCA volunteers and ICAN that we are considering multiple events each year going forward. Spending time with underprivileged kids has given the NCA employees a stronger connection with the local community and brought us closer as a working family. We’re all looking forward to the next event!” said Karl Krum, Director of Operations at NCA.
The Power of Community Organizations
Community organizations such as ICAN are lifelines for individuals and families facing economic challenges. They create safe spaces where low-income families can access critical resources, engage in educational activities, and find the support they need to thrive. By offering free after-school and summer daycare programs, ICAN helps ensure that children receive proper care and education, even in financially constrained circumstances.
Education is a powerful tool that can break the cycle of poverty. ICAN recognizes this and goes beyond daycare services by providing educational programs to children from low-income families. These programs are designed to foster academic growth, encourage creativity, and develop life skills. By supporting community organizations like ICAN, we empower children with the education and resources they need to create a brighter future for themselves.
Volunteering for a Cause
National Credit Adjusters recognizes the power of collective action and the impact it can have on the lives of those in need. By participating in the second annual volunteer day with ICAN, employees and staff aim to demonstrate the importance of lending a helping hand. Volunteering not only provides immediate assistance to community organizations but also fosters a sense of empathy, unity, and purpose among the participants.
Supporting community organizations like ICAN is of utmost importance as they serve as beacons of hope for low-income families. NCA hopes that together with ICAN, we can create lasting change and build a stronger, more inclusive society for everyone in the local community and help inspire those in the global community to come together for a nice afternoon.
NCA wants to give special recognition to the following NCA volunteers for this event: Kay Watkins, Susan Young, Diana Gonzalez, Maureen Gottshall, Margarita Almeida, Mia Hernandez, Maria Kirk, Chris Butler, Chanel Waite, Karl Krum and Michael Ohlund.
ICAN was founded in 1991 by a concerned citizen in Chandler, AZ. Henry Salinas was a humble man who saw gang violence taking over his neighborhood and decided to do something about it. Henry’s initial investment of time and compassion to area teens has blossomed into a full-service youth center whose programs are still free to the community that Henry held so dear, and now impacts youth, teens and their families. ICAN’s nationally-recognized out-of-school time prevention programming teaches vulnerable youth real-life skills including goal setting, positive decision-making and how to avoid the risky behaviors that are prevalent in the community ICAN serves. ICAN is unique because our programming is offered free of charge to remove the barriers that can prevent low income families from accessing needed services.
