True Employees Participated in the 2011 Tulsa Area United Way Day of Caring
September 23, 2011 | POSTED BY KAYNA KELLEY IN EVENTS
TRUE has formally kicked off our first-ever United Way Campaign to support agencies helping those in need in the Tulsa community. This year, we were included in the almost 4,000 volunteers from 135 companies who completed 360 projects during the Day of Caring.
Our particular project was performed at Tulsa Camp Fire's Camp Okiwanee, located within the Sapulpa area. In addition to supplying a monetary donation for materials, TRUE devoted our day to restoring a rare swinging bridge for the enjoyment of camp-goers of all ages for many years to come. This bridge, in great need of repair, had been off limits to campers for the past six years.
Together, with the help of crews from OG&E
and CenterPoint Energy
, we disassembled the current bridge and replaced all boards and materials with new ones, precisely measured, assembled and secured. With plenty of helping hands, we diligently completed our task and then sat back and admired the results of our teamwork.
Our first Day of Caring team building experience will be memorable for all who participated and was a perfect kickoff to our fundraising campaign.
A special thanks to our friends at the Tulsa Area United Way
and Tulsa Camp Fire
for this worthwhile volunteer opportunity.
