Global Non-Profit Organization Making Lives Better with Alorica Expands in Mexico

May 22, 2019

PUEBLA, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2019--

Making Lives Better with Alorica (MLBA), a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of people in need around the world, today announced its expansion in Mexico. The organization has added two new chapters in the country – Mexico City and Puebla – joining the existing Palenque and Hacienda Chapters. As Alorica continues to focus on Mexico as part of its growth strategy, simultaneously, MLBA’s “Mex-pansion” will positively impact local causes, individuals and over 3,000 Alorica employees and their families across Guadalajara, Mexico City and Puebla.

“Making Lives Better with Alorica is unlike any other corporate philanthropic program,” said Joyce Lee, Founder and President of MLBA. “We truly put the decision-making power into the hands of Alorica employees worldwide to support other non-profit organizations and local communities that matter most to them. The addition of these two chapters in Mexico City and Puebla was an important move for MLBA in the country, as we work to make a difference where Alorica employees and their loved ones work, live and play.”

Each MLBA chapter is led by a board made up of Alorica team members. Chapters rally employees to fundraise, organize volunteer activities and help decide where to allocate funds within the community (i.e. individuals and other non-profit organizations). MLBA launched in Mexico in April 2017, and has since partnered with a variety of local charities including: Las Doce Piedritas, Sueños y Esperanza, Ministerios de Amor and Casa Hogar Maria Teresa, AC.

Since its inception in October 2015, employee-led MLBA chapters have raised over $4 million dollars through Alorica payroll contributions and fundraisers. Of the funds collected, more than 7,000 grants have been awarded – totaling in excess of $3.3 million. In addition, when local areas are hit hard by natural disasters or other crises, MLBA assists impacted employees, families and communities through its Disaster Relief Fund. If you have any questions about MLBA or would like information on how to donate, please email Mex.programadmin@livesbetter.org. You can also follow MLBA Mexico on Instagram and Facebook.
