Q3 Donation Drive

Our Corporate Citizenship Committee is responsible for selecting charities and events in the community for OC to partner with. They budget donation spending, organize volunteer groups, and so much more. 

In 2018, they decided to select a cause each quarter and collection donations. For Q3, they chose the Sunshine School and Development Center, and Sheep Dog’s Christmas Outreach Program. OC employees collected school supplies and other miscellaneous items that were donated to the Sunshine School and toys for the children of military, police, fire, and EMS families who need assistance this holiday season.

Michael Nimmo, a representative from Sheep Dog Impact Assistance visited the Bentonville OC campus to present us with a Certificate of Appreciation for our donations and longstanding support.

Additionally, the Corporate Citizenship Committee is now selling popcorn every payday to raise money for our quarterly donation drives.
