Employees Host Party for Those in Need and Ask Community Members to Give to
VOA Seniors During and Beyond the Holiday Season
WHEN: Tuesday, December 20, at 5 p.m.
WHAT: TeleTech hosts its second annual Spirit of the Season charitable
event to share holiday gifts and goodwill with those in need.
Instead of a traditional holiday company celebration, TeleTech's
employees chose to host a party to help low-income senior
WHO: More than 200 participants of the Volunteers of America (VOA)
Sunset Park Senior Center are expected to attend TeleTech's
holiday event to enjoy a turkey dinner and gifts from Santa Claus.
Seniors will visit with more than 400 TeleTech employees and their
families, who volunteer to serve meals and assist guests at the
party, along with former Denver Nuggets players Walter Davis and
Calvin Natt. All 650 participants of the VOA's senior program
will receive gifts that include much-needed blankets, socks,
toiletries, and a picture frame with a photo from the event to
brighten their residences.
WHERE: Mile High Station, 2027 West Colfax Avenue, Denver. Busses will
transport seniors from the VOA Center to the event.
WHY: With a strong culture of giving back to the community, TeleTech
employees want to help those who may not receive as many
contributions at the holidays as other groups.
"Seniors are in need of food, clothing and companionship,
especially during the winter months," according to Linda Dee,
director of volunteer services for the VOA Colorado Branch. "The
holidays are an especially sad time for seniors, who may not have
families with whom they can celebrate. They are extremely
appreciative of time and resources offered to them."
HOW THE DENVER COMMUNITY CAN HELP:
Those interested in giving time, clothing or monetary gifts to the VOA
Sunset Park Senior Center should contact the VOA at 303-297-0408 or visit
