Cydcor Kicks Off New Cydcor Cares Program With 'Reading Fair' at Local Boys and Girls Club.
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, announced that it kicked off its new Cydcor Cares Program with a reading fair that took place at the Boys and Girls Club in Thousand Oaks, California. During the event, Cydcor team members read to children from kindergarten to fourth-grade ages while dressed up as memorable fictional characters.
Local independent used bookstore, The Bookaneer, donated bags of children's books to the event, which team members will read to the children and display for them to browse. Eight team members from Cydcor participated in the event, volunteering in areas including reading, acting out scenes from books, and coordinating the flow of the event.
"We believe that community involvement is a collaborative effort," said Gary Polson, CEO of Cydcor. "The vision of this program is to create real service opportunities for individuals as well as group team member participation. At Cydcor, our goal is to live up to the Behaviors We Value by giving back to the community."
Cydcor Cares enables team members to work together and use the eight volunteer hours that Cydcor offers to all team members yearly. Additionally, the Cydcor Cares program, offered quarterly, puts local and remote team members in direct contact with low to no-cost charitable opportunities that they can participate in individually or as an organized group activity. It also provides team members with an opportunity to support causes and organizations that are important to them.
The Cydcor Cares Program was created on the heels of Cydcor's Neighborhood Leader Program, which provides an opportunity to Cydcor's network of independent sales offices to donate to their local communities through charity and volunteer work. Since inception, the sales offices have dedicated almost 300 hours and helped more than 28 organizations.
"We're thrilled that Cydcor selected the Boys and Girls Club for their event and look forward to a day filled with fun and learning," said Georgi Harden, director of the Boys and Girls Club of Thousand Oaks. "It's a great opportunity for the children and further demonstrates the wide array of programs we have available."
"I think it's wonderful that a local company has made it a priority to give back to their local community and provide such a great program to children," said Tracey Benedict, owner of The Bookaneer. "I was more than happy to donate all that I could - I know that the program will be a huge success."
Future plans for the Cydcor Cares Program include participation in environmental impact programs, food kitchens, community bake sales, tutoring, and business building programs given by team members in areas including interview skills, resume building, and career coaching.
