OCC People:  Plant a Seed, Grow a Future

06/09/2014

On April 24, Headquarters employees and their families participated in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day (TODSWD). The theme for the day was “Plant a Seed, Grow a Future.” Seventy-four children participated in the annual event, which focused on modules for career awareness, skill building, work/life balance, and community service. Sixty volunteers at Headquarters made the fun-filled, educational event a big success.
