OneCoast makes a difference in October
OneCoast, a nationwide sales and marketing services company, gave back to its communities across the United States during the third week of October in recognition of National Make A Difference Day. Each October, OneCoast employees volunteer individually or with their local team to give back in various ways to their own local communities.
This October, over 100 OneCoast employees volunteered at several projects such as food pantries, homeless shelters, compiling care packages for our troops, donating blood, and youth programs, while serving a number of organizations that include American Red Cross, North Texas Food Bank, Feed My Starving Children, and Catholic Charities.
“We believe in doing good business and doing good things. We encourage our employees to be active in their communities and find ways to give back,” said John Keiser, CEO of OneCoast. “And, as a company we work to do the same. For several years now, we have provided each employee two community service days in order to assist them in serving their communities.”
“During the week of National Make A Difference Day, we served over 750 hours to 88 various organizations and charities across the United States. Serving organizations across the country is part of who OneCoast is. It is in our DNA,” continued Keiser.
At OneCoast, Making A Difference is one of the company’s core values. They believe in giving back to their communities while inspiring others to take action and to come together as a company for a common purpose. Whether the service projects are big or small, OneCoast believes that every project is important and makes a difference to those they serve.
“While we challenge our employees by setting a goal of hours served, it’s never really about the numbers, but always about having fun and striving to make a difference without expecting anything in return,” said Tammy Myers, manager of employee experience at OneCoast. “Everyone is so appreciative for our give back initiatives as evidence by the hundreds of photos that we have been able to share with our company throughout the years.”
Twice a year, Myers leads the coordination efforts of scheduling her local team’s volunteer projects. “I am thankful for the opportunity to lead our Dallas and Fort Worth team with our volunteering efforts. Whether we are packing boxes at our local food bank or coordinating an art project for a children’s hospital, we are always having fun and it truly is as much a blessing for us as it is for those we are serving,” she said.
