Kickball for the Kids

On Friday, September 27th, twelve representatives from OC participated in a kickball tournament benefitting the Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter.

  • Aubree Alden
  • Beau Brosius
  • Cassidy Ford
  • Courtenay Gillett
  • Alan Grilli
  • Gabe Grilli
  • Taylor Herbert
  • Ethan Higgins
  • Alberto Hurtado
  • Hunter Laney
  • Josh Mangum
  • Devin Tuggle

Over $86,000 was raised, and the OC Kickin’ Chickens took on the #1 seed in the playoffs but lost after a hard-fought battle and two extra innings.

High winds kept the offensive numbers low for all teams this year.

  • Game 1: Win 2-0
  • Game 2: Tie 2-2
  • Game 3: Loss 0-1
  • Quarter Finals: Loss 0-1

Every 3 months, our DCs elect a team member who went above and beyond for his or her teammates and customers.

Winners are chosen based on adherence to safety initiatives, productivity, reliability, attendance, quality of work, and attitude.

The winners receive a gift card, framed certificate, and OC T-shirt, and their own street sign, which gets hung above an aisle in the DC. The 3rd quarter winner for 2019 was Rochelle Grau.

IMG_0433OC Celebrates Customer Service Week

National Customer Service Week was observed October 7-11. We celebrated with daily games and prizes, free food, community service projects, pumpkin carving, and more!

We gave away over 75 prizes to OC employees ranging from gift cards to Razorback football tickets; we even gave away a mountain bike to one lucky winner!

More than 65 volunteers donated over 200 service hours to the Sunshine School, Samaritan Community Center, Souls Harbor, Faith in Action, and more!

We finished the week off strong with our annual OC Tailgate! We served lunch, watched football, played games and fellowshipped with one another. There were activities for children including blow-up obstacle courses and pumpkin painting. We gave away thousands of dollars in door prizes.
