DURANT, Okla., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- PRC, LLC (www.prcnet.com), a premier provider of outsourced customer contact management services, announced today that the company will mark its fourth anniversary as a member of the Durant community with a celebration at 10 a.m. on June 10th at the PRC offices at 1012 Radio Road.  Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins, State Senator Jay Paul Gumm, State Representative John Carey, and Durant Mayor Jerry Tomlinson will join PRC in celebrating its anniversary.

As part of the celebration, local employees will pledge to contribute 1,000 hours of community service and raise $6,000 to support nonprofit service organizations in the Durant area through PRC Community Care, a company-wide initiative that encourages and enables PRC employees to take an active role in improving their local communities. Each month throughout 2010, PRC employees will participate in a specific volunteer activity, raise money or collect items for donation to local organizations that address children's issues and domestic violence, as well as national organizations such as the United Way.

"Community service isn't just something we talk about at PRC. It's a part of our fabric as a company," said PRC CEO Steven Richards. "We encourage and enable our employees to get involved. We are proud to be a part of the Durant community and applaud our employees' efforts to take action in improving their neighborhoods."

During the June 10th event, PRC officials will also announce the company's hiring plans for 2010, which could provide opportunities for up to 150 job seekers in the area. The company's bustling call center currently employs around 625 employees, handling in-bound customer service calls for clients in the telecommunications, education, entertainment, shipping, and financial industries. Employees have been active in the PRC Community Care program, but plan to commit additional resources to help expand their outreach efforts.

"We've been very active over the past few years, participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, the Support our Troops Campaign, Special Olympics, multiple United Way foundations, various local charities, and the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Awareness Organization," said Durant General Manager Matt Hunt. "We're looking forward to helping build a better community again this year, and I hope that what we're doing inspires other individuals and companies to get involved."

Representatives from local nonprofit organizations that have signed on to participate in the PRC Community Cares initiatives will also be on hand to announce plans for the coming year. The United Way is on the list to receive aid from PRC employees, and works with many organizations in Bryan County including Toys for Tots, Families Feeding Families, Crisis Control Center, Salvation Army, and the Durant Literacy Council.

"PRC has been a wonderful supporter of nonprofits in our area," said Pam Robinson, Director of Bryan County United Way. "The United Way would not be able to help the community without the support of local businesses like PRC."

In the past three years, PRC and its employees have contributed more than $400,000 in charitable donations to local community groups and organizations in the areas where the company does business, earning PRC a well-respected reputation as a champion for corporate citizenship.

The company was recently recognized by ContactCenterWorld.com as a top global provider of outsourced contact management services. For more information about PRC, visit www.PRCnet.com
