Cydcor takes pride in supporting the international children’s charity Operation Smile. Through dedication and compassion, along with the help of its network of independent sales offices, Cydcor has raised more than $500,000 to provide surgery for children in need, and help fund missions around the world.
Cydcor’s relationship with Operation Smile began in 2010, when Cydcor pledged to raise $150,000 through fundraising initiatives such as basketball tournaments and recycling programs. Cydcor also challenged its independent sales offices throughout the United States and Canada to raise funds for the charity.
In June 2015, Cydcor and its network of independent sales offices held the third annual fundraising event "Day of Smiles.” This fundraising effort helps to fund medical missions to underprivileged countries, and through ongoing successful efforts, Cydcor has continued to fundraise for additional medical missions in the near future.
Cydcor has raised money for three medical missions to impoverished nations to witness first-hand the change that Operation Smile can make in a child’s life. In November of 2014, Cydcor completed its third medical mission for Operation Smile. A team was sent to Guatemala closely after the second medical mission, which took place in San Cristobal, Mexico.
“We are so proud to have funded three medical missions for Operation Smile, and we are on our way to funding a fourth,” said Cydcor’s President Vera Quinn. "We are tremendously grateful that Cydcor can help make such a difference for so many families."
In early 2015, at Cydcor’s annual Keys to Success event held in Dallas, Texas, Operation Smile founders Dr. William P. Magee, Jr., and his wife Kathleen S. Magee announced to an audience of 800 that Operation Smile and Cydcor plan to fund two additional medical missions; providing free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children in need around the globe.
Because of your efforts, children around the world will have a brighter future and the chance at a normal life. Thank you for your generosity and let’s make 2015 a success!
