NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Teleperformance, a global leader in digital business services, has teamed up with anti-hunger organization Feed the Children to provide 2,800 kids and families with essential school supplies and food this back-to-school season.
From Texas to Virgina, Teleperformance and Feed the Children are hosting a series of events in select U.S. communities to distribute backpacks filled with necessary school supplies, hygiene products and snacks to 1,200 students at at-risk schools, and food and daily essentials to 1,600 families who are facing food insecurity. Combined, the back-to-school and food distribution events will take place in 11 communities where Teleperformance operates.
With inflation and the cost of supplies steadily increasing, many families struggle to put food on the table and to send their children to school with the basic supplies needed to help them learn and grow in the classroom.
“Feed the Children is truly humbled by Teleperformance’s generosity and support of our mission,” said Travis Arnold, president and CEO, Feed the Children. “The need for food and other assistance is significant, and we are very thankful for our partnership. Together, we are providing hope and resources to vulnerable children and their families.”
Teleperformance has been a long-time partner of Feed the Children in the U.S. for 17 years, supporting various education, food distribution and disaster response initiatives. The partnership has played a significant role in how Feed the Children fights childhood hunger and poverty today.
“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Feed the Children to help struggling families and at-risk students in the community,” said Mike Lytle, Chief Executive Officer for Teleperformance in the U.S. “Through our collaboration, we strive to be a force of good in the lives of families and communities. We look forward to continuing our shared mission of spreading compassion and making a positive impact in our communities.”
