Plantation, FL, March 22, 2005- In response to the devastation caused by the tsunami in South Asia and India, employees of Precision Response Corporation raised over $14,000 to support the humanitarian relief and recovery efforts. According to Alicia M. Miyares, Vice President of Communications for PRC, those funds will be matched by PRC’s parent company, IAC, bringing the total contribution to over $28,000. "Today, I sent checks to the International Red Cross totaling $14,147.90," said Miyares. "This is outstanding and will go so far to help those in need."

Sprint Relay operators did their part to help those suffering from this disaster by launching several fund-raising activities. On Friday, January 21, employees held a car was in the back parking lot of 1505. Team managers, shift managers, and even 1505 General Manager, Walter Berger spent the day washing and waxing cars, trucks and vans. "Thanks to everyone, we were able to raise a total of $1,125 from all our fund-raising events," said shift manager Fola Orindare who made the car wash a family event, bringing along her children Jide, Tinu and Olu.

The relay center also sold raffle tickets for a two-night stay at the Wellington in New York City and a couple of televisions. Relay operator Beverly Richardson was the lucky winner of the hotel stay, while General Manager Walter Berger and Quality Assurance Representative Erick Alvarez each won a television.

Team manager Fabian Collins organized a successful bake sale, which was held on Wednesday, January 26th. Relay agents baked their favorite cookies, cakes and pies to sell in the employee break room. Getting into the giving spirit, some agents were seen purchasing the very items that they had baked and donated. "Everything is so delicious and it’s all going to a great cause," said Collins, as he devoured his third slice of pumpkin pie.

Berger hopes that the fundraising events will not only give the center employees an opportunity to do something tangible to help those in need, but will prompt them to realize how fortunate they are. "When we end each day with our families, we are reminded of all we have," he said, "…and more importantly, some others have lost."
