ORLANDO, Fla. (January 28, 2021) – COVID-19 soured holiday celebrations for so many people in December, including the 62 employees of AutoPayPlus by US Equity Advantage, the nation’s leading automotive biweekly loan payment service. But, thanks to a lemonade moment, the season was a little brighter for seven nonprofit organizations. When AutoPayPlus made the difficult decision to cancel its traditional end-of-the-year employee event due to travel restrictions for remote team members, concerns for extended family and the lack of a suitable venue, the company decided to use funds budgeted for the event to help those in need. Employees based at the company’s headquarters in Orlando, Florida, selected a local organization called Baby DJ. Founded by “Johnny Magic,” the long-time host of Central Florida’s top-rated morning radio show, the program makes it possible for impoverished families to provide a wonderful holiday experience for their children. Additionally, AutoPayPlus held a competition among its national field teams to nominate charities in their region. The selected charities were:

Southeast Region:

Midwest Region:

Northeast Region:

West Region:

“To say that 2020 was a difficult year is an understatement, and the decision to cancel our annual holiday event was certainly a disappointment for our team members,” said CEO Robert M. Steenbergh. “But, I can tell you, the opportunity to make the season brighter for those in need was a gift that made all of us appreciate the season of goodwill.” About AutoPayPlus by US Equity Advantage Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, AutoPayPlus is an industry leader in automated biweekly and early loan payoff services for automotive, RV, boat, home and student loans.
