EUGENE, Ore., September 18, 2020 – FCR, the premier provider of customer experience and business process solutions, announced today that it would be providing relief aid to their colleagues and those in the local community impacted by the recent wildfires in Oregon.
In response to clients and colleagues wanting to help, FCR recently launched a successful GoFundMe campaign for the wildfire relief fund, raising more than $22,000 in just one week.
“Twenty of our colleagues were directly impacted by the fires,” said Katheryn Carnahan, COO of FCR. “Sadly, two of those colleagues lost everything, including their homes and their pets. We will be directing a portion of the funds we have raised to go directly to support those colleagues and others who were impacted.”
The remaining funds will be donated directly to local community shelters in the greater Roseburg, Grants Pass, and Eugene communities. Although FCR surpassed their original fundraising goal, they will be leaving the GoFundMe page up if individuals would like to continue to donate to the relief fund.
“We were humbled, but not surprised, by the outpouring of support from the larger FCR Community of clients, vendors, and FCR colleagues,” said Matthew Achak, President of FCR. “During this fractious time in our country’s history, it’s nice to see neighbors coming together to help each other escape the fires. We saw the very best come out of each other to rise and respond, and we’d like to thank everyone who contributed.”
