for OCO's RHY Shelter 

Above in front from left are Tyler Kamp, Alfred Scheuer, and David Fuenzalida.  Middle row from left: Amber Roberts, Allison Soss, Megan Capuano, Keira Slater, She'Bria Gordon, Iyuhna Callands, Vickttoria Maxwell, and Danielle Kehoe; Back row from left Morgan Barker, Ryann Ward, JeQuana Johnson, Skyler Elkins, Kelsey Finch, Natalie Shopland, Stephanie Arnold, OCO Development Coordinator Margaret Barclay and Jill Fratangelo of OCO’s Homeless Services program.

Reaching out to fellow students, friends, family, and faculty the students collected an array of winter clothing, hats, gloves, blankets and other items as well as more than $300 in monetary donations.  “It’s been a very rewarding experience,” added Skyler Elkins of Psi Phi Gamma.  “You sometimes don’t realize the needs that exist and how appreciative people are of the help they receive until you experience it.” 

The winter supplies drive for OCO is one of the many community service projects that the members of Alpha Sigma Chi and Psi Phi Gamma have organized.  “We believe strongly in supporting the community we live in.  While our stay here may be temporary the community will be here long after we’re gone.  We want to do our part to keep the community strong so that years down the road our sororities, fraternities, and the community in general is still thriving,” said Ryann Ward of Alpha Sigma Chi.

OCO Policy on News Media Access and Relations:

It is OCO's practice to respond to news media inquiries as quickly as possible, depending upon availability of spokespersons or subject experts and the complexity of the topic being covered.

All requests for comments, interview, photos/video, or statements must be handled through OCO Administration, 598-4717.

OCO Executive Director Diane Cooper-Currier is the Agency's designated official spokesperson, and the only person authorized to speak on behalf of the Agency unless otherwise designated by herself or the Chairman of the OCO Board of Directors. Her phone number is: 598-4717 ext. 1017.

Arrangements for filming/photographing and/or interviewing OCO department and program staff, volunteers and clients must be made in advance by contacting the Director of Information and Compliance Betsy Copps at 598-4717 ext. 1092.

Due to confidentiality requirements, federal and state regulations, and Agency policy, all OCO clients, employees and volunteers must have a signed release on file with the Agency before they can be interviewed, filmed or photographed.

News media are free to visit program sites that are public places or service portals; however, many program sites are also clients' homes or shelters and therefore not accessible without permission. Please check with the Director of Information and Compliance first.
