“We are proud to count such a caring and community-minded company as G & C Foods among our supporters,” said Cooper-Currier. “As an anti-poverty agency OCO’s mission is ‘building futures, changing lives’ as we help people overcome barriers to success and reach their goals. The programs and services we offer at OCO provide our clients a hand up. We are committed to fighting poverty and helping people thrive in a healthy and safe community. We are appreciative of the fact that not only does G & C Foods help sponsor our Bowl-A-Fun; they send several teams of employees to participate in this fun event. G & C Foods’ commitment to our community and its support of our programs is inspiring.”
OCO’s Somewhere Over the Rain-Bowl will have teams on the lookout for lions, tigers and bears as they wander down the yellow brick road to bowl on the lollipop lanes. There will even be bad witches and good witches joining in on the festivities!
