Bacolod City, Negros Occidental— Two major call centers operating in this city recently extended their support in the city’s fight against COVID-19 as it extended cash and in-kind donations.
A cash donation of P500,000 was turned over by Transcom to the local treasury of Bacolod recently. The amount was previously pledged by Transcom’s executives to support the city’s fight against COVID-19. The check donation was personally received by Mayor Evelio Leonardia in a simple turnover held at the Bacolod City Government Center, together with City Administrator Em Ang.
Transcom Bacolod Site Director Aprille Rose Dela Cruz hopes that this assistance from their company will be able to support the city’s effort in battling the deadly virus.
Meanwhile, Teleperformance, through its Corporate Social Responsibility arm, Citizen of the World, turned over to the city various medical equipment for use in COVID-19 Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facilities.
The donation that was received by Bacolod City Health officer-in-charge Dr. Edwin Miraflor Jr. include oxygen tank set with regulator, oximeter, blood pressure apparatus, thermal scanner, wheelchair and transfer stretcher.
According to Ang this additional donation will help boost the confidence of the public in the city’s TTMF.
Since the start of the pandemic, Teleperformance has been actively engaged not only to protect its employees’ health and jobs, but also in assisting medical frontlines in their fight against COVID-19 through various financial and in-kind donations.
