iQor Call Centers' Canned Food Drive Helps Those in Need This Holiday Season

iQor, a global provider of intelligent customer interaction and outsourcing solutions, announced today that its call centers around the world have donated more than 55,000 items to benefit local charities and typhoon victims in the Philippines.

iQor’s inaugural “Great Giving Race” canned food drive was made possible through the kindness and generosity of iQor employees. In addition to canned food items, iQor call center professionals made cash donations to a wide variety of local charities and collected clothes, shoes, coats and blankets to donate locally to typhoon victims in the Philippines.

“Donations from this event will go a long way to help those in need,” said Mason Argiropoulos, iQor Chief Talent Officer. “Our employees rallied together to show what a tremendous impact we can make when working together. We’d like to applaud the organizers for coordinating such a successful effort and thank each and every person who made a donation.”

iQor operates five call centers in the Philippines, including in the Clark Economic Zone in Pampanga, Davao, and Dasmariñas, employing over 6,000 customer care professionals supporting a wide variety of call center services 24/7.

“The iQor team is there to support the Philippines,” said Gary Praznik, iQor Chief Operating Officer. “I am very proud of the kindness our global team has demonstrated for our family in the Philippines. While we were not impacted operationally, our employees had family and friends who were and we’re doing our part to the help them in their time of need.”
