Central Portfolio Control, Inc (CPC) hosted a Summer Party in July to celebrate employee achievement, enjoy time with family and friends, and raise money for another great cause. The Minnetonka, MN-based collection agency was able to donate over $1,700 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (St. Jude’s) from the party’s dunk tank donations to support children undergoing treatment for disease. Another in a succession of charity-driven employee events, the team raised money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital while they and their families enjoyed games and food from local favorite, Veteran-owned, GI Joe’s food truck.

Fun For A Good Cause

Employees gave a $5 donation to St. Jude’s for three chances to dunk one of five members of CPC’s executive management team in the dunk tank. Spectators enjoyed snow cones and a good laugh for a good cause. “I didn’t think we had so many great pitchers on our team,” jokes Central Portfolio Control’s President, Alicia Lesher, “we had so much fun bringing everyone together and our team always finds a way to give back. Community service is part of who we are; I’m proud to be part of such a compassionate corporate culture.”

Charity-Centric Culture

Service is a common theme at CPC, and the employees dedicate themselves to not only serving the local community but also by providing superior customer service to clients and their customers. The Company values align with the great work that organizations, like St. Jude, do for those in need. Some CPC employees have been personally impacted by childhood disease and the medical costs associated with healthcare. The team rallies together to support charitable organizations that team members are passionate about, keeping them very engaged with each other and our community.
