Teleperformance, the global leader in outsourced omnichannel customer experience management, is partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Davis and Feed the Children, to host a community distribution event focused on providing food and essentials to 200 local families at Teleperformance’s Ogden location (2261 Grant Ave.) on Wed., Sept. 18, 10 a.m. to noon. This event is in effort to fight childhood hunger and give children the much-needed school supplies for new school year success.
With more than 6.5 million children living in food insecure households in the U.S., many do not know where their next meal will come from. The food provided for those attending this community event will help feed children at-risk of missing important daily meals. Each participating family, pre-identified based on need by the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Davis, will receive a 25-pound box of food such as canned vegetables, cereal, peanut butter and mac ‘n cheese; a 15-pound box of essentials like personal-care items such as shampoo, razors, toothpaste and feminine hygiene products; and backpacks containing school supplies such as notebooks, folders and pencils.
“Basic needs that may not be a big deal to some, are life changing to those who are struggling to feed their families or cannot afford basic school supplies,” said Carson Warner, Site Director for Teleperformance’s Ogden location. “Through the partnership we’ve built with Feed the Children, we’ve built meaningful relationships with so many wonderful people in the community and are very happy to have made an impact by helping in any way that we can.”
This is one of many events Feed the Children has planned with Teleperformance across the America to help vulnerable children and families in their local communities. With more than 21 percent of families living below the poverty line in Ogden, many families struggle to put food on the table. It takes all of us working together to provide hope for a brighter future. The organizations are joining forces to fight hunger and make a significant difference in the lives of families who need it the most.
“We call the U.S. the land of plenty, and for most of us, that’s true. Yet, millions of boys and girls are going to bed hungry every night,” said Travis Arnold, Feed the Children president and CEO. “By combining efforts today with Teleperformance and the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Davis we are trying to put an end to that. These families are not only receiving food and essentials, but also the educational materials needed to break the cycle of poverty.”
