DALLAS, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Securus Technologies, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring, commended its management teams for a job well done working to combat malnutrition worldwide at a recent team building event.
More than one hundred associates from across the Company joined forces to pack meals at the Dallas Packs Hope Mobile Pack Event for the Feed My Starving Children organization. With the help of Securus and other volunteers across north Texas working in two-hour shifts, the event packed more than one million meals to feed the hungry during the three-day event.
Working in teams, associates combined vitamins, vegetables, soy and rice into sealed packages that will be delivered to more than 70 countries worldwide. The food is delivered through partner agencies that are accountable for shipping costs and providing impact reports on the use of the food.
"Being a part of something larger than ourselves is always powerful. At Securus, our associates understand how their work impacts the lives of the customers we serve and how our technology can save lives in the corrections industry," said Kate Lengyel, Vice President, Human Resources. "At this mobile pack event, we are better able to appreciate each other as individuals, build teamwork, have fun, and make a difference in eradicating hunger worldwide and saving lives in a different way."
Ms. Lengyel continued, "Team building moments like this where associates are working together having a good time making a difference and accomplishing a goal is one more way of how Securus connects what matters for its associates. It's what makes Securus a special place to work."
