Amscot teams up with local organization to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need


MIAMI FL -- On Saturday, November 18, 2017 Amscot Financial will partner with the 100 Black Men of South Florida, Inc. to distribute Thanksgiving food baskets to Miami-Dade County residents who are less fortunate. 

Amscot's donation of 625 turkey boxes filled with all the fixings will be distributed to 25 local churches throughout Miami feeding over 5,000 people.

“All of us at Amscot are thankful to be part of the Miami community,” says Ian MacKechnie, Amscot’s founder, chairman and CEO. “It was important that we reached out to those neighbors who might not have a Thanksgiving meal otherwise. We’re grateful to the 100 Black Men of South Florida for organizing such a much-needed effort.”

Now in its 28st year, the civic organization has purchased and assembled baskets of traditional Thanksgiving meals to more than 70,000 people in the Miami-Dade county area. Residents have been served from as far as Florida City to Sunrise.

Amscot Financial has 237 locations throughout Florida. The company offers check cashing, cash advances, and free money orders along with a host of other convenient financial services, 365 days a year.
