Dedicated Commercial Recovery Donates 100,000 Meals to Starving Children

Dedicated Commercial Recovery, a company specializing in alternative financing, working capital, and equipment finance collections, announced it has donated 100,000 meals to Feed My Starving Children.

Shawn Smith, CEO of Dedicated, said he hopes the company can be an example to others across the nation regarding how they can make a philanthropic difference in the lives of the less fortunate and change their own company cultures and perspectives.

As a 5-year-old company, Dedicated has come a long way, and has found that “putting good out into the world” has resulted in improving the lives of all of those involved. Employing best practices, putting employees first and placing significance over success is truly the Dedicated way. Since 2015, the company has worked with numerous charities and nonprofits including, but not limited to, Cradle of Hope, Feed My Starving Children, Habitat for Humanity, The Sheridan Foundation and Restavek Freedom.

Dedicated intentionally deviates from the industry’s normal goal of short-term monetary gain at the expense of others, and instead focuses on the incredible personal fulfillment that is derived from saving the lives of children and their family members who are in need. While this may be an abnormal corporate strategy, especially for a collections agency, it has made all the difference in Dedicated’s success.

“When you go into the Third World and you are serving a child that looks like a Holocaust survivor, everything else fades away. The only thing that matters is that child,” Smith said. “After seeing that and thinking about your own children, there is no way you cannot do something about it.”
Working with Feed My Starving Children provides a great opportunity to not only save the lives of children but to create direct action that leads to direct benefits. When a client places an account at Dedicated, 10 children are fed.  When a collector sets up a payment arrangement, 10 children are fed. Every client is informed by Dedicated of the direct impact they are having. That, in turn, has resulted in over 100,000 meals being donated by Dedicated to Feed My Starving Children.

Going forward, Dedicated is working behind the scenes on a massive rebranding, so that people first encountering its brand can see what Dedicated authentically and transparently cares about most: giving.

“The world needs a lot more love and compassion. When corporations decide to start investing in people over profit and significance over just success, that’s when dramatic changes occur. 100,000 meals are just the beginning. We are building a company that is committed to feeding hundreds of millions of children with a lifetime goal of feeding over a billion,” Smith said.

Dedicated started giving on its first day of operations back in 2015. The idea of people over profit drives Dedicated to focus on putting individuals in this world before its own success through a significance first model.

As a leader in the MCA and equipment finance commercial collections industries, Dedicated adheres to a faith-based model of correct conduct, and strives to create a positive impact through the work that it does and the resources that it provides through giving. As it looks to the future, Dedicated hopes to one day feed over 1 billion children through FMSC, help free thousands of child slaves through its legal program, fund thousands of microfinance loans through new clients, serve locally and monthly with its team members, and inspire a worldwide movement of corporate philanthropic platforms.
