MACA's sister unit, the New Jersey Collectors Association, invites all ACA members to support the 2016 campaign

The New Jersey Collectors Association is bringing back its “Turning the Tide” campaign to support families it has helped over the years since Hurricane Sandy hit the northeastern coast on the U.S. in 2012.   The lasting impact of the storm remains in much of New Jersey where residents and businesses continue to struggle to move forward.

Turning the Tide was originally organized as a nonprofit by Elizabeth Mallory, president of Heritage Financial Recovery Services in Upper Saddle River, N.J., and fellow debt collectors to provide relief to Hurricane Sandy victims for whom federal, state or insurance funds are falling through the cracks. 

ACA members in the New Jersey unit and the Mid-Atlantic Collectors unit helped two families impacted by the storm, and are working together again this year to collect donations for their home and medical expenses.

One of the families, the Riveras, moved back into their home a year after the storm with the help of donations from ACA members. Since then the Riveras found out their home would have to be razed, necessitating another move, according to Mallory. They will have to add a wheelchair lift to their new home to help their youngest son, who was born with Legg-Calve Perthes disease.

The New Jersey Collectors Association has set the goal to raise $10,000 through Turning the Tide and has already collected $2,000 in donations. The Mid-Atlantic Collectors Association, the sister unit representing the states of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia, recently donated $250 to the cause.

New Jersey unit has named this effort “Turning the Tide,” intending to change the outcome of someone's life, and, with hope and anticipation, the perception of our Industry. All ARM industry and ACA members, and their employees, are invited to host fundraising events to support recovery efforts in New Jersey, noting that even a small token can make a big difference to someone who has lost everything.  The details of these fundraising events are left to the imagination and creativity of each business.
