Two large rooms at the OC Connections’ central office have received a fresh coat of paint thanks to a team of volunteers from Dulux. The painting days, which were organised by Jennifer VanGramberg from Dulux took place on July 4th and 5th.
The team was welcomed by OC Connections’ CEO Therese Desmond, who gave an overview of OC Connections and the important role that volunteering plays within our organisation.
