“As a company, we enjoy celebrating the holidays with company luncheons or parties, but nothing brings our employees together like reaching the common goal of helping our communities."
Dublin, OH (PRWEB) March 7, 2011
Employees of Influent hold events throughout the year to help communities where they are located. This is especially meaningful during the winter season and employees are proud to announce that over 400 pounds of food, hundreds of winter clothing items, and over $5,000 in direct contributions were contributed to various community service organizations and individuals during this past holiday season.
Mr. Jason Lancaster, Influent’s Vice President of North American Operations, said, “Influent, which operates contact centers throughout the country and in Panama, has a very active employee base which works with a variety of wonderful local organizations and has a positive impact to the community. When possible, Influent employees want their contributions to help the less fortunate within their own communities. In three separate instances employees collected donations to benefit some of their own co-workers who experienced personal tragedy last year.”
Influent employees generously donated to a diverse group of charities, including the Salvation Army, Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund, Southern Iowa Economic Development Association, Quanada Women’s Shelter, Relay for Life, Mid-Ohio Food Bank, The Arthritis Foundation, and Adopt-A-Family. They also gave their time to help people in need by participating in area shelters, fundraisers, walk-a-thons and fun runs across the country.
Mr. Andy Jacobs, Influent’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “As a company, we enjoy celebrating the holidays with company luncheons or parties, but nothing brings our employees together like reaching the common goal of helping our communities. We gain so much from the workforce talent in the communities where we are located and it is very special to be able to give back to those communities.”
