VoiceNation Launches “Operation Give Back”

The staff at VoiceNation donated 146 gifts in their “Operation Give Back” program that ensures local children living in shelters or in need of assistance receive gifts this holiday season.

VoiceNation, the industry leader in live answering and virtual receptionist services, has launched Operation Give Back, a program to ensure local children living in shelters and those in need of assistance receive gifts this holiday season.

VoiceNation’s president Jay Reeder provided each of his employees with resources to support a child. Each employee was provided with an informational packet for a child, which included the child’s holiday wish list and the funds to purchase gifts.

VoiceNation donated 146 gifts to four organizations within the local community to support 22 children, ranging in age from 17 months to 16 years old.

“Operation Give Back is our way of making the holidays brighter for children living in shelters and in need of assistance. We consider it an enormous privilege to give to others,” explained Reeder.
