Matthew Hyman, Central Payment's Managing Partner shares what inspired Central Payment to demonstrate support, "In business, we continue to stress to all of our employees and sales partners that the act of giving back to your community is vitally important. GrowingGreat applies that same philosophy by encouraging families that are less fortunate than others to participate in their community. The combination of a healthy lifestyle and a nurturing environment is imperative for all of us and we are proud to be able to support them."
