Cydcor is a company that works for you! Major clients like Qwest and AT&T have outsourced to Cydcor for their face-to-face sales. But I am sure most of you did not know that Cydcor is also very involved in philanthropy; When one of their former receptionists decided to move to Ethiopia to teach English and Art, Cydcor donated $1000 to the school she was working at. Her former colleagues also collected around $600, and some school supplies as well, to give to the school. What a wonderful gift for an impoverished school, and how nice to see a big company giving back to the community!
Here is a copy of their press release about their donation to the school in Ethiopia:
"Cydcor Supports Former Team Member Through Donation
Leading global provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams
and its team members provide funds and school supplies
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. (October 3, 2008) – Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, and its team members recently made a donation to the Andinet International School in Ethiopia, in addition to packing and sending supplies for the school’s children and teachers.
In support a former Cydcor receptionist who moved to Ethiopia in August to teach English and art to impoverished children at Andinet, Cydcor donated $1,000 to the school and Cydcor team members individually contributed nearly $600 in additional funds.
“We look for opportunities to support our team members’ prosperity internally as well as externally while they pursue other goals and passions,” said Gary Polson, chief executive officer of Cydcor. “At Cydcor, we try to create a philanthropic environment where our team members can support each other, and we all wanted to help her make a difference.”
Cydcor and its team members were also able to fill four boxes of binders, paper, padfolios, pens and pencils to be personally delivered to the school in Ethiopia. The money will be used to purchase student school and arts supplies, which are often limited or non-existent.
“The Andinet International School expresses heartfelt gratitude for the generous contribution and personal delivery from Cydcor,” said Nefertiti Makeda, director of Andinet International School. “Our school is growing and we are always in need of educational materials.”
