DENVER, Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TTEC Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC), a leading global customer experience technology and services company focused on the design, implementation and delivery of transformative solutions for many of the world's most iconic and disruptive brands, recently hosted its 14th annual Spirit of the Season holiday event benefitting University Prep students and families, and announced other 2018 grants of the TeleTech Community Foundation.

TTEC volunteers celebrate the holiday season during the company's annual community outreach event, which benefitted more than 300 University Prep students and their families. The Denver-based customer experience technology and services company has hosted the event for the past 14 years, as part of its company-wide initiative to give back to education organizations in the community by providing access to the tools and support students need to succeed.

Established more than 36 years ago in Colorado, TTEC has long been a strong supporter of education initiatives across the local community. Through the community foundation, grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations that strive to transform the educational experience for disadvantaged students. The foundation, now in its eleventh year, has been ranked by the Denver Business Journal as one of the top 10 corporate foundations in Colorado for total contributions made to local charities. TTEC was also ranked in the top 25 of the Top Corporate Philanthropists' list for Colorado-based charities in 2017.

TTEC has hosted the Spirit of the Season holiday celebration, which this year benefitted University Prep students and families, for the past 14 years with participants enjoying a free and fun evening of entertainment, food, and gifts. 313 students and their families participated in this year's event, with more than 80 TTEC employees volunteering for over 100 cumulative hours to plan, prepare and participate in the festivities. In addition, area Boy Scouts, middle school and high school students volunteered and earned service hours while participating alongside TTEC volunteers supporting the event. TTEC's community foundation has supported University Prep for the past five years, providing funding and support for a variety of technology and human capital needs at the school.

"For more than a decade, we have worked hard to create better tomorrows for students through the efforts and grants of our community foundation and the efforts of our people, both here in Colorado and in all the communities we serve around the globe," said Michael Wellman, Chief People Officer, TTEC. "I'm very proud of what we have accomplished this year through our employee driven grants and volunteer activities such as the Spirit of the Season. It's important to our team to make a sustainable and positive impact on the communities in which we live and work."
