We believe in helping people and have made it our business to care for our many communities. TMX Cares is our community involvement and volunteer initiative dedicated to supporting all of the communities in which we live and work. And if you do the math, that’s over 1,100 communities in 15 states across the country! Our Company is committed to partnering with our team members to engage in and help strengthen our communities.
We are a team. We are one. We are the TMX Finance® Family.
The TMX Cares Fund allows our team members to help other team members experiencing extreme financial hardships due to unexpected and critical family crisis’ on a regular basis, not just during a natural disaster. We hear about our very own team members facing severe medical issues or that they have lost everything to a house fire, and we want to come together and offer support. We will not let our team members face these dire situations alone. We are family and we are here to help.
We are committed to improving the quality of life in the communities where we do business. From collecting toys for children during the holidays to having a book drive to support a local school system, we strive to be responsive to the many different communities we serve. We support numerous programs and services as well as partner with national groups to help make a positive impact that matters in our local communities. We achieve great things when we work together as one!
Check out just a few of the initiatives that helps our communities thrive.
The Heart Award embodies our mission of helping people. It’s at the very “heart” of what we do each and every day. However, there are some who go well beyond what is expected and they achieve more because of their extra effort to help others.
All participating stores and corporate departments are eligible to receive this recognition, which is awarded to the store and the corporate department that raises the most funds during a TMX Cares community initiative. Together, through our many efforts, we are able to make a significant impact on our communities, helping the people who need it the most.
We admit it. We wear our hearts on our sleeves when it comes to our TMX Finance® Family and our many TMX Cares community initiatives! We’re open and honest about our feelings towards our team members and for giving back to our communities- WE LOVE IT! The “Wear Your Heart” shirts can be purchased by clicking below and the profits we receive from each shirt or item go directly to our TMX Cares Fund. We encourage you to wear these shirts at our community events to not only represent our Company, but by wearing our hearts on our sleeves, we’re letting everyone know how much we love giving back to our communities. It’s at the very “heart” of what we do every day!
The holidays can be a very difficult time for many families. During November and December, we work extra hard to bring in donations of unwrapped toys to help make children’s holiday wishes come true! We partner with Toys for Tots®, The Salvation Army, and local churches to serve as donation drop-off points during the holiday season because it’s our goal to make sure as many children as possible have a wonderful holiday!
Every summer, we work to give children in need tools to succeed with our Back-to-School Supply Drive! Our 900+ stores and two corporate offices nationwide come together to support children in our local communities. All items donated go directly to school districts, churches, or after school programs.
Our Company operates stores in states that have been continuously ranked in the top 10 nationally for having high hunger rates; so each October, we host a food drive for local food banks, after school programs, and shelters. To collect as many non-perishable items as possible, we’ve held a “Can-struction Challenge” where we collect and then build a structure from donated items as well as a SOUP-er Hero donation box decorating contest. Not only do we have fun working together and competing, but we also bring awareness to our neighbors who are facing food insecurity.
May is Military Appreciation Month and we express our gratitude for those currently serving, veterans, and their families by partnering with local military support organizations across the country like Operation Gratitude®, local USOs, and Veteran Hospitals and Military Medical Centers. All our store and corporate locations work together to bring in donations of wish list items that can be sent in care packages to U.S. Troops, First Responders, Veterans, Military Families, and Wounded Heroes and their Care Givers. While the items may be small, the impact is huge!
TMX Cares Stories from TMX Talks Blog
I first learned my son, Tanner, had autism at 12-years-old. After many previous misdiagnoses, fear and worry consumed my heart every single second of every day. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states “Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain…People with ASD may behave, communicate, interact, and learn in ways that are different from most other people. There is often nothing about how they look that sets them apart from other people.” Even though Tanner looks like everyone around him, I wondered what his future would hold and how, in our busy lives, …
In March 2018, I found out I was pregnant with my first, and only, child – a precious baby boy! My husband and I were so excited because we struggled with infertility for six years. Throughout my pregnancy, everything went great, and we welcomed our sweet Gunner in October 2018. He quickly become the joy in our lives, and in everyone else’s! Everyone who meets Gunner instantly loves him. As he began to grow, we noticed he wasn’t meeting some small behavioral milestones at two-years-old and also wasn’t talking. We knew that something wasn’t quite right. So, we started Gunner …
I have had the privilege of living with my sister-in-law, Bridget Jones, since 2004. Bridget has Down syndrome, which makes her not only special, but extraordinary. She is full of love and cheer. Guess what? She is more like me and you than you know. Instead of me telling you everything about her, let’s hear directly from Bridget! “Hey everybody, my name is Bridget Jones. I’m 47-years-old. Many people don’t understand what I’m all about, why I’m special. I’m human just like everybody else. Most people know that I am famous for that movie named after me, do you know …
Back in 2003, I joined Susan G. Komen to get involved and raise awareness after reading her story. I participated in walks, wore a pink scarf during the month of October, tied a pink ribbon to my phone, and read about developments. I remember a former co-worker asked why I have the ribbon on my phone, and I explained it’s to bring awareness to breast cancer; initially, she thought it was because it had something to do with me, a family member, a friend, etc. Well, at the time, no; I was just being an advocate. I was in my …
Savannah, Georgia (August 2022) – The TMX Finance® Family of Companies recently concluded their annual Back-to-School Supply Drive donating essential school supplies in the Company’s many cities of operation across the country.

My name is Hannah Reen and I’m 22 years old. I’ve been with the Company for almost six months and work in the Savannah corporate office as the Multi-Media and Content Producer. I have autism. People often describe individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome as people who are on the “higher functioning” side of the spectrum. In relative comparison, that is true. Autism is a spectrum that includes different types, or “levels,” to categorize and appropriately identify a person. So, in a sense, I am “higher functioning” than others on the spectrum that deal with different cognitive development issues. However, at the …
