Heights Finance Announces 'Pay It Forward' Program

PEORIA, Ill. (02-24-12) Heights Finance Corporation, a consumer finance company, is excited to announce their upcoming Customer Appreciation Days. This year's event is taking place during the entire month of March. Every Friday in March, each branch will be providing refreshments and snacks for customers.

The theme of this year's event is "Pay It Forward: Helping Our Community Together". Heights Finance will be doing just that by holding a food drive to benefit local food pantries in six states and nearby communities. Coloring cards will be offered for customers to sign and decorate. For every 4 cards received, Heights Finance will donate $1.00 to the local food pantries.

"We're very proud to implement the ‘Pay it Forward' program. It gives us a unique opportunity to partner with our customers in giving back to the community," says Tim Stanley, President and CEO of Heights Finance Corporation.

There will be customer giveaways and a Kindle Fire** sweepstakes during Customer Appreciation Days. Customers must come in to register for the sweepstakes in order to have a chance to win.
