OEC helps fight hunger, feed hope

Fourteen OEC employees on Aug. 22 spent the afternoon volunteering at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Moore Food and Resource Center as part of OEC Empowers, an internal initiative encouraging employees to give back to the communities we serve.

“The Moore Food and Resource Center is a vital part of the community of Moore that helps feed thousands of families each month,” said Brianna Wall, editorial and events coordinator. “Many of the employees who volunteered — including myself — live in Moore and are proud to give back to a community that gives us so much.”

Volunteers sorted produce, stocked the freezer and refrigerators, organized the warehouse, helped clients shop for groceries and offered smiling faces to all who came through the center that day.

“We could not have helped feed over 110 families if it weren’t for the efforts of OEC’s employees,” said Moore Food and Resource Center Director Skyler Parker. “We are grateful for their hearts to volunteer and for the leadership at OEC to allow them the opportunity.”

The Moore Food and Resource Center, located at 2635 North Shields in Moore, serves clients in Moore and south Oklahoma City. For more information and to learn how you can volunteer, visit
