Local Businesses Help Support The Communities the Work in!
It’s more important than ever today to try and support local businesses. Businesses that are in the community are part of the community. They support local charities and events, employ people from the neighborhood and work hard to be good and responsible neighbors. Pawn shop are the same. When you search for a pawn shop near me on Google, you support the good that those pawn shops do.
A Few Communities Where Empire Loan Calls Home
Since 1985, Empire Loan’s 8 locations in MA and RI, have been valued members of the communities we serve. Through the years we have supported organizations like Girls Inc., The Boys and Girls Club, and many other worthy causes. In 2011, we created the Empire Loan Charitable Foundation which has donated nearly $750,000.0. to area charities. Here are just a few examples:
In Boston, Massachusetts:
We support “No Books No Ball” which for over 25 years has used academics, basketball and community engagement to motivate urban youth and empower families, individuals and communities.
In Providence, Rhode Island:
Empire Loan has supported “Calle Limpia” a program committed to keeping Providence streets clean and free of litter for a better quality of life for the neighbors and neighborhoods near our stores.
Empire Loan in New Bedford:
Has supported the “Day Of Portugal” festival that celebrates the vibrant Portuguese community that has a long history in the New Bedford and south coast area with live performers, culinary specialties and features many of the Portuguese community organizations near our store. We have given over space in our parking lot to allow vendors and community organizations space to set up.
The List of Community Involvement Doesn’t Stop There
In all 8 communities where Empire stores are located, 2020 has been a challenging year. With the understanding that food insecurity is an existential threat to many, Empire Loan has decided to contribute to local food banks and pantry’s as a way to give back in the communities near where we operate. From The Greater Boston Food Bank to My Brothers Table in Lynn, Empire Loan gives back to communities where we are located.
