March 04, 2011 // Franchising.com // Houston, tx - Representatives from the rent-to-own industry presented a check to the Carlos Reyna Family, Wednesday, February 16th, at the Gulf Freeway RENT-N-ROLL in Houston to assist with the ongoing healthcare needs faced by the family.
Late last year Reyna, a RENT-N-ROLL Manager, who worked at the Gulf Freeway store - suffered two heart attacks and a stroke and recently emerged from a coma last month.
Reflecting the family spirit of the rent-to-own industry, money was raised industry, money was raised industry wide and through the RENT-N-ROLL network in a coordinated effort by RENT-N-ROLL franchise owner, Larry Sutton, to assist the Reyna family. John Spangle - a RENT-N-ROLL franchisee and Reyna's employer - presented a check for $13,697 to Carlos's wife.
APRO also presented a check for $2,500 through its fund-raising efforts and close to $1,000 was raised through both Spangle's RENT-N-ROLL and Partner stores.
As Reyna will continue to face ongoing rehabilitative and other health costs, donors are encouraged to make contributions.
For those interested, make checks payable to Sovoni, Inc - a temporary fund set up for the drive - and write Carlos Reyna Fund in the memo.
