In the spirit of the giving season, annually, O‑A‑K adopts families from local school districts for Christmas. This year, we were honored to adopt nine families, and provide each of them with Christmas presents and grocery needs. O‑A‑K employees and their family members volunteered to shop, wrap and deliver the gifts. Each year, we host a wrapped party; and, this year we wrapped over 270 gifts! Thank you to all for helping make this possible and Merry Christmas!
Adopt a Family Impact
- 9 local families were adopted
- 37 individuals received Christmas presents
- 270 presents were wrapped
- 40 O‑A‑K employees and family members volunteered to shop, wrap, and deliver gifts

Every year we select a handful of school districts that connect us with a family in need in their district; our employees and their family members do their Christmas shopping. It’s nice to be able to give from our family to theirs.
