TeleTech and American Red Cross Host Local Telethon, Raise Half a Million in Donations

DENVER, Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TeleTech), a leading global provider of customer experience, engagement, and growth solutions delivered through its proprietary, end-to-end HumanifyTM Customer Engagement as a Service, set up a temporary donation center at their headquarters in Englewood, CO, to support response to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort in partnership with the American Red Cross.

The 13-hour local fundraising drive was held on August 30, with more than 150 volunteers answering nearly 3,600 donation calls. Volunteers from TeleTech, the American Red Cross and other corporate and community partners spoke with hundreds of residents across Colorado, Wyoming and other neighboring states throughout the day. The collective efforts brought in more than $505,000 to aid those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

The event featured support from several Denver sports teams, including:

  • Former Broncos Brandon Stokley, Tyler Polumbus, Le-Lo Lang, and Larry Evans
  • Former Denver Nugget Mark Randall and current Denver Nugget Torrey Craig
  • Current Avalanche players Erik Johnson and Matt Nieto
  • Team mascots Bernie (Avalanche) and Rocky (Nuggets)

Gino Greco, CEO for the American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming was ecstatic with the results. "I couldn't be more grateful for TeleTech and their extraordinary team. Without their infrastructure and support there's no way we could have accomplished what we did on Wednesday. The people in Texas will be grateful as well."
