ATLANTA, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Spherion Staffing Services, a national recruiting, staffing and workforce solutions provider, will spread the giving spirit this holiday season by donating $138,000 to more than 125 local charities across the U.S. This special contribution is part of the annual Spherion Community Give Back program, a nationwide initiative which recognizes and advances the efforts of charitable organizations that are making a positive difference for thousands of people who live in the communities where Spherion operates.
Charities of all sizes, scopes and missions have been chosen to receive these special donations by each Spherion local office. Spherion operates more than 150 franchise offices across 34 states and focuses on improving peoples' lives, and thus the communities where they live, by helping them find meaningful employment. In addition to making a monetary donation to selected charities, Spherion employees are also contributing their time to make a difference this holiday season.
"We are extremely grateful for the incredible work of our charity partners," said Spherion Division President Sandy Mazur. "These organizations are making a tremendous impact on our communities and the lives of our neighbors who are in need. Giving back to the local communities where we work is an important part of our mission. We are honored to spread the spirit of the holidays to support those who help others."
The charities selected this year are all working to address the most pressing issues local communities face today from health care challenges and animal rescue to youth support and development, hunger and homelessness. Spherion's local teams have been partnering with food banks, animal shelters, emergency relief providers, educational organizations and child-centric charities since 2014. In that time, Spherion has rewarded non-profit recipients with nearly one million dollars.
