Oasis Outsourcing Gives Back This Season
West Palm Beach, FL Dec 15, 2014 – Oasis Outsourcing, one of the nation’s largest Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs), is geared up for a festive and charitable holiday season. Several years ago, Oasis employees chose to forego a formal holiday party in favor of a holiday luncheon and to instead donate the money saved to help local nonprofit charities. The tradition has continued and Oasis was proud to announce at its West Palm Beach holiday luncheon on December 5th, that it is donating a total of $10,000 to five worthy nonprofit organizations.
Oasis is also hosting the annual “Can You Can It” food drive at its corporate headquarters. All employees are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items by bringing them directly to work during the first three weeks of December. All donations will be given to the Palm Beach County Food Bank.
In addition to the holiday-specific events, Oasis encourages employees to participate in charitable events year-round. Several times a year, Oasis invites the blood mobile onsite to provide added convenience for those employees who would like to donate. Annually, Oasis employees participate in a bowl-a-thon to raise money for Junior Achievement. And this year, Oasis’ CEO and two EVPs participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge raising a few thousand dollars for that important cause.
“I’m proud of the spirit of giving that is prevalent at Oasis,” said Debra Bathurst, Vice President, Human Resources for Oasis. “The added component of charitable donations to our local communities gives additional meaning to our holiday events.”
