Red Nose Day is big success

Red Nose Day, held on May 21, was dedicated to raising money and awareness for children and youth living in poverty. The initiative promotes having fun and making people laugh while raising money for various charities supporting that cause. Funds raised during the event go to the Red Nose Day Fund (RNDF), which distributes grants to various charities assisting children and young people in the U.S., as well as some of the poorest communities in the world.

Various Digital Works locations, including Adams County, participated in a telethon event, gathering and processing donations for Red Nose Day over the phone.

“We are proud of the hard work our participants and staff put into this event. We had a great time making each other laugh for a great cause,” said Stu Johnson, Vice President of Digital Works.

Digital Works shared several photos of the telethon on social media. Agents from the West Union facility processed $6,000 in donations for the RNDF. Several home agents in Carrollton processed nearly $10,000 and from the Digital Works location on Portsmouth, agents processed donations through 2 a.m.

The total amount raised by Digital Works agents on Red Nose Day exceeded $20,000.

Digital Works, a program of Connected Nation, Inc., connects people to leading-edge customer support and IT jobs for global corporations. Digital Works offers a technology and client-services training program, along with continued mentorship toward opportunities for advanced IT careers. Graduates of the program can choose to work from home or from a Digital Works center. Since the program launch in Ohio in June 2013, more than 400 people have secured employment.

Employees of Digital Works participated in Red Nose Day, an effort to raise money for children living in poverty.
