Teleperformance USA Helps Thousands of Families
SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 02/05/14 -- Since 2006,
Teleperformance employees have played a vital role in improving the
lives of thousands of children and families in the United States and
around the world. Through their partnership with Feed The Children,
Teleperformance's Citizen of the World team provides immediate relief
for families in poverty and those affected by natural disasters.
In 2013, Teleperformance USA employees distributed truckloads of
food, essentials and other services to thousands of children and
families in 14 cities. Teleperformance employees collectively
contributed nearly $670,000 in cash and donations and volunteered
more than 800 hours. Teleperformance's Global Crisis Fund helped
tornado victims in Moore, Oklahoma and provided immediate relief for
families in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan and a devastating
earthquake in the Philippines.
The dedicated employees of Teleperformance have donated hundreds of
thousands of dollars over the years to help struggling families
across the United States. In the last two years alone, the employees
have helped 11,200 families by sponsoring 28 truckloads of food and
"We are so thankful to Teleperformance and their employees for
helping to provide food and essentials to children and their families
across the country in 2013," said Erin Engelke, spokesperson for Feed
The Children. "Their employee's generosity provide help and hope for
thousands of struggling families. We look forward to helping more
children and families with the help of Teleperformance in 2014."
More than one in five children living in United States (22 percent)
is considered impoverished. The number of impoverished children
living in the U.S. (16,319,909) could fill this year's Super Bowl
venue at Met Life Stadium more than 197 times.
"I am humbled by the generosity put forth by our employees to help
those less fortunate and in need," said Brent Welch, Teleperformance,
CEO, English World and Asia Pacific. "This past year, our employees
collectively contributed more than $1.5 million to a variety of
Citizen of the World initiatives. However, we are particularly proud
of our association with Feed the Children to support the
organization's wonderful efforts."
