Giving Back

ONEC is committed to giving back to our Community.  We financially support and donate employee time to various non-profit organizations throughout the year.

The organizations and causes we support include:

2015 & 2016 United Way – Engineering Day of Caring

The United Way Engineering Day of Caring initiative focuses on giving back to the community. Engineers from various organizations come together to improve their community and build pathways out of poverty by doing what they do best – engineering! ONEC is pleased to have participated both last year in 2015 and this year in 2016!


2015 United Way – Coats for Kids and Families Drive

Coats for Kids and Families is a United Way initiative that began in 1992 due to overwhelming requests from families and individuals with limited resources in need of winter jackets. The donations collected during the Coats for Kids and Families drive at ONEC provided winter jackets, winter boots, toques, mittens, and scarves to children and adults.

Hope Haven – 2014 – 22nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Hope Haven is a charity that is committed to repairing the damage that family violence creates. Last year over 178 women and children visited Hope Haven. 161 women and 268 children were turned away because Hope Haven was full. The funds raised during the annual charity golf tournament provide temporary essentials such as transportation to medical treatment centers, toys, snack and basic maintenance. This upcoming year Hope Haven will be saving money towards the creation of an outdoor healing space for children, youth and women.
