Since 2004, Oconto Electric Employee Charity has awarded $96,000 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, Bag Lunch to Go, bucket raffles at the Member Appreciation Picnic, a golf outing and candy bar sale.
