Brittney Gustafson was one of ten O&G volunteers who read to Torrington elementary school children as part of the Northwest Chamber of Commerce’s Read Aloud Day
The volunteer spirit is alive and very well at O&G Industries. Our employees at facilities and projects across Connecticut are active participants in their communities, often where the needs are the greatest. It is our culture as good corporate neighbors to strengthen the communities where we live and work.
Most of the causes we actively support align with education, healthcare, environmental stewardship and safety. Year-round our employees give back, serving individually, in small groups or as large teams participating in charity events.
Plans are on tap for a clearinghouse committee that will match the passions of our individual volunteers with opportunities for service, making an even tighter fit between the need and our response.
