STARTEK local centers around the country are doing their part to give back to their local communities this holiday season. From collecting cans for food drives to donating clothing, toys and other essentials, Community Matters for STARTEK Brand Warriors, especially during the holidays. Here is what some of our local centers did for the Thanksgiving holiday:
Giving Thanks & Giving Back
STARTEK Lynchburg Brand Warrior team contributed to the HumanKind Project by decorating 25 boxes filled with non-perishable food items to ensure families in the area had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.
Brand Warriors in Mansfield, Ohio hosted a Thanksgiving food drive to make a difference for local families. Their original goal was to collect 800 cans and the team ended up with nearly double that, donating a total of 1,535 cans.
The Myrtle Beach team dropped off 242 pounds of non-perishable food items to the Helping Hand Foundation, a crisis intervention and referral agency whose mission is to provide assistance to those in need in the local community.
STARTEK Brand Warriors in Grand Junction held a Community Closet Donation Drive where they brought in food, clothing and toiletry items. Each team filled up a box with essentials including coats, jackets, baby clothes, pet food, toys, toilet paper, diapers and soap.
Brand Warriors in Greeley, Colorado donated 784 pounds of clothing to local non-profit organizations, including Gift from the Heart and Greeley Interfaith Association Clothing Bank, to provide comfort for less fortunate families in the community.
Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but Christmas is just around the corner. Here is what local centers have planned for the next few weeks:
Tidings of Comfort & Joy
As noted by the Richland Source, STARTEK Mansfield launched its “12 Days of Kindness” campaign last week. For the first 12 days of December, members of the leadership team will be out and about in the local community to make a positive impact by spreading kindness and good fortune. They will be buying groceries, paying for meals or footing the bill for holiday gifts as a way to give back to the community and make an impact in people’s lives during one of the most joyful times of the year.
STARTEK Brand Warriors in Greeley, Colorado and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina are collecting unwrapped new toys for the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to help the organization provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas.
