Top Dollar’s Commitment to Community

At Top Dollar, we work hard to be a supportive and engaged member of the community.  As such, we sponsor community outreach efforts, and support charities and other nonprofit organizations.  Our giving is focused on efforts that deliver positive outcomes in the areas of education, healthcare/wellness, social services, and civic duty.  The following are a few of the ways we support the community in which we serve.

Top Dollars’ Children’s Book Corner

Children who read are more likely to develop a greater interest in school and tend to perform better academically.  Hence, to promote reading among children who live near our store, Top Dollar created the Children’s Book Corner.  The Children’s Book Corner is an in-store bookshelf stocked with more than 250 free books appropriate for children up to 10 years of age. This very popular section of our store is open to all neighborhood kids who want to check out a book and read at their leisure.

 

Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation

Each year, Top Dollar donates to the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation—a national organization that supports children living with cancer and their families. The organization’s mission is to help cancer patients survive through integrated cancer care, a process pioneered by Greg Anderson—a cancer survivor and founder of Cancer Recovery Foundation International.

The Katie Able Foundation

Top Dollar Pawnbrokers is a strong supporter of the Katie Able Foundation, a community-based organization dedicated to helping individuals achieve financial freedom.  The organization offers valuable social, educational, and economic empowerment programs including: adult education, youth development, services for victims of domestic violence, financial literacy, business and workforce development training, and family support services.

Prince George’s County Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics Association

Each year, the lives of many Prince George’s County residents are saved due to brave rescue efforts of local firefighters and paramedics.  Top Dollar thanks these men and women for their heroic work, and as such makes an annual contribution to the Prince George’s County Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics Association.  Our contributions support fire fighters’ giving to local charities including, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Washington Hospital Center Burn Unit, Race for the Cure, and the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation.

Words of Gratitude from Schools We Support

 

Dear Top Dollar Pawnbrokers,

I can’t believe it. This morning when I woke up to read “Your project has been fully funded!” in my email inbox I nearly cried. This overwhelming emotion is entirely because of you, your generous donations, and your continued inspiration to my students and me…. My students will be pleased and excited when I tell them that our project has been funded. I can’t wait until Monday!

Dear Top Dollar Pawnbrokers,

Thank you so much for your generous donation, which will aid my music students…. Our music program [Making the Notes Come Alive!] is already striving to do so much to enrich the lives of these high-need students, and being able to offer them the most dynamic, exciting lessons that we can will not only improve their musicality but also their literacy, mathematical skills, and self-esteem. Thank you once more for your generosity!

We are humbled to have been able to donate to the Helping Hands Fund, a program of the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation.   You have not seen brave until you have seen a child with cancer.

We were blessed enough to have the opportunity to help a growing family of 9 this holiday season. Everyone in the family woke up Christmas morning to a new pair of shoes and toys galore. All of us at Top Dollar Pawnbrokers look forward to doing more each Christmas for deserving families in our neighborhood. If you know a family that you feel deserves a Christmas like never before please don’t hesitate to drop us their information and a hint as to what you think may bring smiles to their faces.

We looooooooooove thank you cards.  We were more than proud to help Mrs.  M purchase books for her ‘Reading Cafe’ at Potmac High School in Oxon Hill, MD.   The little bit that we helped could never compare to the life long dedication Mrs. M. is giving to the children of Prince George’s County.  We need more teachers that care as much as Mrs. M. and work as hard to give hope and a brighter future to our children.  Thank you Mrs. M.

Dear Top Dollar Pawnbrokers,

I can’t believe it. This morning when I woke up to find “Your project has been fully funded!” in my inbox I nearly cried. This overwhelming emotion is entirely because of you, your generous donations, and your continued inspiration to me and my students.When I say “thank you,” I feel as though I’m shorting you all somehow. There are not words to express how much my heart overflows with gratitude.

My students will be pleased and excited when I tell them that our project has been funded! I can’t wait until Monday!

Please do remember to keep giving, even if not monetarily, but with your thoughts, prayers, and volunteer work. Our schools need community involvement! Thank you so SO SO much!
With gratitude,
Mrs. M.

We just received a thank you note from Mrs. S, a teacher at Flintstone Elementary School.  The school is located fairly close to our shop so we jumped on the opportunity to help Mrs. S.  fund her growing music program.  We look forward to visiting the school in the future to see in what other ways we can help in the education of our children.

Dear Top Dollar Pawnbrokers,

Thank you so much for your generous donation which will aid my music students. I am so excited about the prospect of being able to enliven their study of melodic notation with hands-on instruments! Our music program is already striving to do so much to enrich the lives of these high-need students, and being able to offer them the most dynamic, exciting lessons that we can will not only improve their musicality but also their literacy, mathematical skills, and self-esteem. Thank you once more for your generosity!
With gratitude,
Mrs. S.

We are proud to have donated over $1,000 to a local swim team, the Kingfish Swim Club.  We are hoping this donation will afford children in our community the opportunity to compete and learn the valuable lessons afforded to them by being part of a team.  Go Kingfish!!!

We are always looking for ways to give back to the community. We make a point to donate to the local fire and police departments every six months and starting last year we started donating to the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation – (www.childrenscancerrecovery.org). Over the holidays last year we picked one family that couldn’t afford gifts for their children and all pitched in to make it a Christmas they would never forget. I guess you could say giving last year got us hooked on that feeling and we can’t wait to give even more. The 2010 holiday season we would like to go bigger but are not sure how to go about it or what exactly we should do. Giving money is easy, we would like to be able to do something bigger and better then that. If you know of a family(families) in need or have any other giving ideas for us please share – we would like to make this next holiday season unforgettable for as many people as we can. Help us help with your ideas.

Thanks,
Top Dollar Pawnbrokers
