TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC), a leading global provider of technology-enabled customer experience solutions, has teamed up with ABC and the Red Cross today for a “Day of Giving” to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. TeleTech employees have volunteered to help with the telethon throughout the day as numerous ABC, Disney Channel, SOAPnet and Radio Disney programs encourage viewers and listeners to call in with contributions to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. TeleTech delivery centers across North America will support the telethon. “The impact of Hurricane Sandy is widespread and the road to recovery will be long for many families in its path," said Roger Lowe, Senior Vice President of Communications for the Red Cross. "We appreciate TeleTech for its partnership with the Red Cross that helps us meet the most critical needs.” “I’m proud that TeleTech has the technology and the capabilities to mobilize an effort of this size in less than 24 hours,” said Kenneth Tuchman, TeleTech chairman and chief executive officer. “Hurricane Sandy affected millions of people along the East Coast, many of whom are still without power and running water, even a week after the storm. We’re honored to team up with ABC and the Red Cross to support these recovery efforts.” To participate in the “Day of Giving” you can:
