Local STARTEK Communities Prepare for Back-to-School

STARTEK teams across the country helped their local communities get ready for another exciting school year ahead.

The STARTEK Hamilton Center partnered with The Fitton Center as well as other local businesses and organizations to give away free school supplies and haircuts to Hamilton City Schools students. Children and their parents flocked to the event after seeing updates on social media, forming a massive line for the free school supplies including notebooks, pens and book bags.

This was the first back-to-school community initiative event for the STARTEK Hamilton Center but plans are already in the works for next year, according to this article from the Journal-News. Local students and parents can expect more food, fun activities and especially more school supplies to prepare for such a big crowd. 

STARTEK Brand Warriors in Mansfield, Ohio also gave a boost to the community by holding the second annual Back2School event earlier this month. This event was designed to help families lacking the necessary funds collect much-needed school supplies.

The team held an indoor carnival with lots of games, prizes and activities for kids, along with food and school supply giveaways as a way of giving back to the community and making sure children get off to the right start this school year. As an added bonus, local hair stylists were on-site offering free haircuts to students at no cost.

"We're always trying to come up with new, creative ways to impact the community," explains STARTEK Recruiting Manager, Don Kaufman in an article from the Richland Source

A few states away, Brand Warriors in Grand Junction, Colorado “stuffed the bus” to raise more than $400 for employees and the local community to prepare for the school year ahead. 

From collecting school supplies to raising funds, STARTEK Brand Warriors believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work. Community involvement is a huge part of our company culture, and we’re already looking forward to holiday initiatives in the months ahead.
