Sandy, UT, March 29, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Corporation and Nonprofits Band Together to Help 400 Military Families.
Operation Homefront, Teleperformance U.S.A., Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, and Feed the Children are partnering to support 400 Sandy-area military families on Friday, April 3. Families will be provided with food and essentials boxes in time for the Easter holiday. Members of the University of Utah’s women’s basketball team and various local business will be onsite site helping distribute food and essentials.
“Military families endure hardships that set them apart from the norm, as they are often far away from their support systems like family and friends,” said Mark Davison, Executive Director of Operation Homefront Mountain West. “It's an opportunity to thank our men and women in uniform, celebrate their service, and provide them a little peace of mind.”
“On behalf of Teleperformance, our volunteers, and those we serve in our communities domestically and internationally, we are very grateful to be working with a terrific charitable partner such as Feed the Children,” said Kerry Black, Regional Human Resources Manager for Teleperformance U.S.A. “It is through the collaborations of foundations, businesses, and individuals that we are able to make a difference.”
The event is one of many that Feed the Children and Teleperformance U.S.A. have planned across the country, ensuring that children and families can focus on being families instead of focusing on hunger this year.
