TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amscot Financial continues its steadfast focus on the community where
its roots began. Recently the Tampa-based financial services company
contributed $2,500 to The Corporation to Develop Communities of Tampa,
Inc. (CDC), an organization focused on alleviating poverty and physical
deterioration in Hillsborough County’s East Tampa Community.

“Amscot Financial has been a long-time partner of the CDC of Tampa,
supporting our good work in East Tampa and Hillsborough County,” says
Ernest Coney, president and CEO for the CDC.

Ian MacKechnie, Amscot’s founder, chairmen and CEO, is quick to cite the
importance of organizations like the CDC. “Community is about looking
after one another, and the CDC has shown an unwavering commitment to
improving the lives of our fellow neighbors,” says MacKechnie. “They
deserve our support.”

The CDC’s roots can be traced back to May 5, 1992, when it was known as
the Lee Davis Neighborhood Development Corporation. The CDC supports
many local neighborhoods plagued with dilapidated, overcrowded housing,
and high rates of poverty, unemployment, teen pregnancy, school
dropout/suspension, and drug abuse.

Amscot Financial, a leading provider of consumer oriented financial
services, operates 237 locations throughout Florida and serves millions
of consumers annually. The company offers bill payment, cash advances,
check cashing, and free money orders along with a host of other
convenient financial services, 365 days a year.
