CHICAGO, IL. December 16, 2022 – INFiN, a Financial Services Alliance and the leading national association representing the licensed consumer financial services industry, honored PLS with its prestigious Activa Award, in recognition of its outstanding commitment to involvement in local communities throughout the country. The award was presented to PLS at the MoneyTrends 2022 conference in Austin, TX for its support of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
INFiN’s Activa Award is given annually to consumer financial services providers who demonstrate an exemplary commitment to giving back to the communities they so proudly serve through a wide array of community engagement and other philanthropic endeavors. The Activa Awards celebrate and promote better understanding of the pivotal role community-based financial services providers play in making America’s neighborhoods good places to live and work.
