TouchStar Helps Get Call Center Community in Colorado to Support Toys for Tots

By Patrick Barnard, Senior Web Editor, TMCnet

Toys for Tots is a 501 (c)(3) charity run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which donates toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. Founded in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks, its mission is to “collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”

This past holiday season, Denver-based call center solutions provider TouchStar (News - Alert) called upon the Colorado call center community to contribute to a holiday toy drive to benefit the Foundation. The toy drive was part of the TouchStar Community Spirit Program (CSP (News - Alert)), which assists non-profit organizations with various volunteer activities.

"TouchStar strongly encourages our partners, customers, and employees to share,” TouchStar CEO Steve Bederman (News - Alert) said in a recent company statement. “Toys for Tots is such a wonderful and respectful organization to partner with in bringing joy to less fortunate families. Our organization certainly grew from this experience, and we value any opportunity to give back to our community. 2008 is TouchStar's year to share and we plan on sharing in big ways."

Members of the Call Center Networking Group joined TouchStar in donating toys to the foundation.

Bederman said the TouchStar Community Spirit Program and the fund drive are representative of the company’s “core value” of giving back to the community. The company -- which offers a wide range of call and contact center software solutions -- supports numerous charitable organizations and encourages any non-profit organization to contact them with requests for volunteer support.
