Companies Raise Over $2500 with "Dress Down" Donations for Japan Earthquake Victims

ROHNERT PARK, Calif. – CrossCheck, Inc., the nation’s third largest check approval and guarantee company, and Optio Solutions, LLC, an accounts receivable management company, announced a donation of $2577 to the Red Cross to benefit disaster relief efforts for victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Employees of the two companies donated money for a "dress down" pass allowing them to wear jeans and casual dress to work at the corporate office.

"With the tragic circumstances in Japan recently, we found that many employees wanted to do something to help. Our 'Dress Down' campaign was an active way to get involved and we had a lot of participation," said J. David Siembieda, President and CEO for CrossCheck. "In addition to fundraising campaigns like this, CrossCheck and Optio Solutions employees contribute to food drives and volunteer opportunities and I am extremely proud that we can support them as a company."

Employees of both companies could make a donation to the Red Cross and purchase a pass allowing them to wear jeans and casual dress for a two-week or one-month period ending April 15, 2011.
