28 Jul One Team, One Goal, One Community
Together we have the power to make a difference!
Thanks in part to our new Employee Volunteer Program (EVP), Dobson employees made a big impact during April, May and June in both philanthropic and community efforts. To name a few, we tackled hunger, honored teachers and ran like the wind to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Oklahoma County.
Here are some of the initiatives in which we were involved throughout the three months:
- During the month of April, Dobson employees collected and donated school supplies for students and teachers at Tulakes Elementary School.
- On April 10th, a group of employees ran in the 33rd Red Bud Classic Run to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Oklahoma County.
