Ocean Partnership for Children Inspires Greatness with 4th Annual Giving Challenge
This year's theme, "Be the Greatness," set the tone for a week filled with meaningful challenges designed to bring joy, gratitude, and support to those both within and beyond the OPC community. Throughout the week, staff members were presented with a variety of challenges, each geared towards spreading positivity and making a difference in the lives of others. The challenges aimed to tap into the collective strength of the organization, creating a ripple effect of kindness that extended far beyond the workplace.
Be the greatness of gratitude and respect
On day one, employees were tasked with sending letters to thank a frontline worker. This could include those in the military, medical field, a first responder or a co-worker. This simple yet powerful act recognized the dedication and sacrifice of these individuals, spreading positivity in the process.
Be the greatness of fulfillment
On day two, canned food, hygiene products and paper products were collected, demonstrating OPC's commitment to supporting local communities in need. An abundance of canned goods, toilet paper and other items were brought to the OPC offices for the greater community.
Be the greatness of appreciation
On day three, the challenge involved recognizing the efforts of colleagues by completing an employee shout-out. This not only boosted morale within the organization, but also highlighted the importance of acknowledging and appreciating the hard work of those around us.
Be the greatness of generosity
Day four brought toys! As part of the OPC Toy Drive, staff members were asked to bring in toys, contributing to the joy of OPC youth during the holiday season. From Barbie to board games to Play-Doh and more, the generosity of the OPC staff was on full display. This challenge reinforced the organization's commitment to nurturing the hearts of the youth served every day at OPC.
Be the greatness of advocacy
On the final day of the Giving Challenge, OPC employees were asked to share a charity that has a special meaning to them. This provided an opportunity for individuals to learn about other organizations and connect on a personal level.
To add an extra layer of excitement to the Giving Challenge, prizes were awarded to staff members who earned the most points by actively participating in the various challenges. This recognition not only celebrated individual contributions but also served as a collective acknowledgment of the organization's shared commitment to making a positive impact.
