DALLAS, Nov. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LALA, one of the largest dairy products companies in the US and Latin America, will present a check to TeletonUSA during their live fundraising telecast to air December 12 and 13 on Spanish-language television station Univision. LALA and TeletonUSA invite everyone to donate as well.
TeletonUSA favors a culture of integration of people with disabilities, cancer and autism. The organization raises funds from private parties and companies to build and operate low-cost rehabilitation centers for children who can normally not afford the therapies they need. TeletonUSA also donates a percentage of funds raised to other organizations that are just as dedicated to helping children across the United States.
This is the second consecutive year in which LALA will donate funds to TeletonUSA. "Our social commitment is to look out for the wellbeing of the people in the communities where we have a presence and we are proud to contribute to TeletonUSA," said Mauricio Galvan, Marketing Director, LALA Branded Products.
LALA's mission is to "nourish for a lifetime" and goes hand in hand with TeletonUSA's philosophy "science and heart united to save lives." LALA invites everyone to send messages of support to the child patients of CRIT USA through #DaMasDeLoBueno. The messages of support will encourage children to continue with their rehabilitation work and will help create a mural that will be presented to CRIT USA in San Antonio later this year.
LALA is the premier dairy product company in Latin America with over 60 years in the market and a broad portfolio of milks, dairy and non-dairy foods that nourish consumers throughout all stages of their lives. With a strong manufacturing and distribution presence in the US, Mexico and Central America, LALA provides fresh quality products to millions of consumers every day.
In 2012, Fundacion Mexamerica became an independent organization and thus changed its registration to what is now known as Fundacion TeletonUSA. TeletonUSA has strong roots in the Hispanic community and its traditions. It strives to promote essential values, including family, love, solidarity and trust, and has made it a goal to help children with disabilities, cancer and autism in the United States.
The newest chapter in TeletonUSA's history is the grand opening of the first CRIT in the United States. The Children's Rehabilitation Institute of TeletonUSA opened its doors in October 2014 and is emblematic of TeletonUSA's goal "Hispanic families united to help our children."
