BRANDON, FL – Amscot is set to celebrate the grand opening of its Brandon branch at 809 East Bloomingdale Avenue on Saturday, March 21st from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. As part of the grand opening celebration, Amscot will be donating $500 to The Emergency Care Help Organization (ECHO). ECHO provides immediate relief in the form of food, clothing, and household items to residents of the greater Brandon area that have experienced a recent emergency.
In addition to supporting ECHO, the grand opening event will also offer an array of activities for families. There will be radio station giveaways from US 103.5 FM as they broadcast live from Amscot’s parking lot. Free refreshments and pizza will be provided and there will be giveaways from MetroPCS. An Amscot recruiter will be on hand to talk about the many exciting career opportunities available with Amscot.
"Through the years, Amscot has served countless Florida families with convenient financial services that help them get on with the business of life. When we hold events like this, it's only natural that our focus on families and children remains front and center," says Ian MacKechnie, Amscot's Founder & CEO.
The Child Rescue Network will be on hand for a free kid’s fingerprinting program. Their Safety ID Program will weigh and measure kids, take a thumbprint and photograph and give parents a laminated Safety ID Card to put in their wallets. These valuable tools save lives and can help quickly reunite a lost child with his family.
