StarTek organizes blood donation drive and fundraising for Philippine Red Cross
(Manila, Philippines, April 7, 2010) – As part of its Community Matters program, high-value business process outsourcing (BPO) services provider StarTek recently organized a blood donation drive and fundraising activity to contribute to the Haiti Fund of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC).
StarTek sold dress-down passes to employees and raised Php27,000, which was turned over to the Haiti Fund. In addition, StarTek employees arranged a blood donation drive. Forty-two employees donated more than 400cc of blood each, adding 42 much-needed bags of blood to the Red Cross’ supply. The donation drive was held at the employee lounge of StarTek’s Makati facility.
The StarTek Community Matters program is intended to contribute to the development of the communities in which the company’s facilities are located through regular corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The support for Haiti was an exception in that it was meant to contribute to relief efforts for that earthquake-devastated country.
