“Five years ago, we started Community Connection Day to provide associates time to give back to the community. We find that our associates look forward to this event each year and make recommendations on which organizations we could support. Associates tell us they enjoy the team interaction and value the opportunity to give back,” said Amy French, OEC Executive Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer. “Although we are continuing to grow as an organization, we do not want to lose sight of our culture and core values, and Community Connection Day is very much a part of that,” French added.
