Supporting Our Communities During National Volunteer Month
In April, we celebrated National Volunteer Month by encouraging our employees to use their eight hours of company time to volunteer for the organization or opportunity of their choice. Below are just a few of the recent ways our team positively impacted the areas where we operate.
Wings (Oklahoma City)
Wings’ goal is to enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities in hopes that every day, their members are growing toward greater independence and realizing their full potential.
Impact: 35 members of our OKC team took a tour of the Wings facility and then helped in the garden weeding flower beds, shaping hedges, digging up old tree roots and even building a new shed.
Faith and Fostering (Louisiana)
Faith and Fostering works to provide foster care to homeless young adults through community and connections to live a life of hope and purpose.
Impact: Haynesville employees helped move donated furniture into the apartments where young adults are developing individualized independent living plans and transitioning into independent adulthood.
Regional Food Bank (Oklahoma City)
Founded in 1980, the Regional Food Bank distributes food through a network of more than 1,300 community-based partner agencies and schools in 53 counties in central and western Oklahoma.
Impact: Over 70 OKC team members donated more than 180 hours of their time organizing food, packing up meals, and chopping fresh veggies.
Child Hunger Outreach Program (Pennsylvania)
CHOP’s mission is to create an entire generation that doesn’t know hunger through innovative and collaborative outreach partnerships.
Impact: A group from the Marcellus worked with CHOP’s Backpack Program to help close the hunger gap by clearing four pallets of food and organizing them for distribution to local school pantries.
Wyoming County Envirothon (Pennsylvania)
The Envirothon is an environmental and natural resource conservation problem-solving, teambuilding and leadership experience for high school students. It challenges students to think critically about the natural world and their role in it.
