Since 2004,Oconto Electric Employee Charity has awarded $68,000 to charities and organizations. Each spring the Oconto Electric Cooperative (OEC) employees choose a charity to raise money for throughout the year. Several events are held throughout the summer, with the donations being made to the recipients in late fall. Employees have held charity lunches, jeans days, a raffle and bake sale at the Member Appreciation Picnic, a golf outing and candy bar sale.
Oconto Electric Employees are seeking grant applications for its annual Employee Charity program. The application period is open now until November 30, 2016. Funds will be dispersed late 2017/early 2018.
