In a community struggling with poverty, a truck arrives to bring some relief. This truck carries food and basic essentials for families in need or backpacks filled with school supplies for kids who need a chance at a good education. Really, this truck brings hope.
The Feed the Children truck rolling in to support area families is sponsored by Teleperformance Group, the worldwide leader in outsourced multichannel customer experience management. But this company is so much more that. Since 2006, Teleperformance has partnered with Feed the Children to provide quick relief for families struggling with poverty or hit by natural disasters.
Just like Feed the Children, Teleperformance believes that they have a global responsibility to help kids be happy and healthy. Their huge social responsibility program and others like it help Feed the Children give kids in poverty a chance to grow and learn.
As a Feed the Children corporate partner, Teleperformance helps families in poverty in the U.S. and around the world. They set aside 35% of cash donations for disaster relief campaigns. This money provides blankets, ready-to-eat-meals, baby supplies, water and medicine to victims of disaster.
Recently, their Global Crisis Fund helped communities in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan and an earthquake, donating money, mobilizing feeding centers, and giving rice and water. After the devastating tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, Teleperformance gave immediate relief to affected families.
They take a holistic approach to every truck distribution event they sponsor, bringing in vendors who provide all sorts of free help for people who are struggling – haircuts, SNAP and WIC booths, job training and continuing education booths, facepainting and other fun activities for kids, and often even lunch for everyone who attends.
Feed the Children can’t fight poverty alone, and partners like Teleperformance know we need their help. They help us with donations of money and resources, but they do more than that. They give hope to hurting families all around the world.
