OUC’S Materials Fulfillment team got into the holiday spirit of giving by donating food and toys to New Image Youth Center, a nonprofit that serves at-risk K-12 students in Orlando’s Parramore community.

Joelle Konze, Manager of the Materials Fulfillment, said she delivered the donations on Dec. 18, culminating a food and toy drive she and her teammates began in late November. Konze added that she proposed New Image as the recipient of the donations because she was familiar with the center’s mission. “We just wanted to try to help and make a small positive difference in the kids’ holidays,” she said.

Toni Crabtree, Program Director for New Image Youth Center, called the donations a “very welcome surprise,” adding, “We appreciated the gesture, and we put everything to good use.”
