FCR Fights Hunger In Oregon With Food Donation Drives


ROSEBURG, OR – JULY 17, 2015

fcr-ucan-scfsFCR, the premier provider of outsourced live agent call center and business process solutions, announced the results from a month long campaign in June in partnership with UCAN of Douglas County and South Coast Food Share of Coos County. The company held canned food drives at two of its call centers in an effort to help fight hunger in Oregon. The food drives, held in FCR’s Roseburg and Coos Bay centers, raised over 1,000 lbs in food donations. The donations will be used to help those who are hungry and in need within the local communities.

“Giving back to the communities who give so much to us in return is part of our culture here at FCR. We love our communities and we try to do things to show our appreciation and to give back to those in need,” said Matthew Achak, President and cofounder of FCR. He continued, “Whether it is blood drives, walks to support awareness of domestic violence, or golf tournaments to support cancer awareness and local charities, it is important that we do everything we can to support the communities that give us so much in return.”

“Let me assure you this will make a difference to those in need, as our member agencies continue to see high numbers of folks needing help. In June our network provided emergency food to over 12,000 household members, of those over 3,800 were children,” said Jeanine Coffey, Resource Development Coordinator for UCAN Food Bank. She continued, “We believe this partnership will grow and we look forward to our next opportunity to work with FCR and their dynamic staff. Thank you again for caring about others in our communities and for supporting the UCAN Food Bank and our network of emergency food programs. Working together we are making a difference in the fight against hunger in Douglas County.”
