Pay-O-Matic is proud to announce our new partnership with The Child Center of NY. Our corporation and employees are participating in the Holiday Giving Tree Project. For many of us, the holidays are a time to celebrate with family and friends, to share gifts and reflect on our good fortune. It is a time of year when we share our love and concern for others. However, for many families, the holidays bring sadness since they are unable to afford the cost of celebrating.
