Everyone is in the Holiday spirit at OCC! Here are some of the community service projects and fun things our students and employees have been doing this Holiday Season.
Yesterday, our students in the OCC Criminal Justice Program and Phi Theta Kappa joined a contingent of employees from the American Association of Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) in volunteering at the Salvation Army’s Christmas Bureau Distribution. Students and staff filled bags and boxes with food, helped people find toys for their children and much more!
In the first part of December, members of the OCC chapter of the AAWCC collected diapers from across campus for the CNY Diaper Bank. Though not pictured here, over 1,000 diapers were donated to families across the Central New York region. It wouldn’t be possible without all of these ladies!
The Community Care Hub at OCC wanted to make sure our students were able to stay warm this Holiday Season. So, they spent the month of November collecting coats from OCC employees and students. Now, any OCC student in need of a coat can stop by the Community Care Hub in G134 to see if they have a coat in their size.
Volunteering at the Rescue Mission
Our College for Living students have been extremely dedicated to volunteering at the Rescue Mission this Holiday Season. We’re proud of all our students for giving their time this Holiday Season.
Gingerbread House Making Competition
For fun, OCC employees participated in a friendly Gingerbread House making competition. Congratulations to the Academic Affairs office on winning the competition.
