Owen Gives Back Program Feeds Gordon Community on Thanksgiving
The employees of Owen Security Solutions gathered on Thanksgiving Day to prepare and serve a Thanksgiving feast to the Calhoun and Gordon County community at Calhoun First Baptist Church.
Team Owen, along with volunteers from Calhoun First Baptist Church and other local organizations, collected donations, prepared and then served a wonderful Thanksgiving Day meal to more than 150 individuals. Community first responders were also invited to enjoy the warm meal, in appreciation for spending their holidays protecting our communities. All leftover food was donated to the Voluntary Action Center and the Calhoun Men’s Shelter.
The Owen Gives Back Program was formed by employees as a way to come together as a company, give back to the community and help those in need. Employees make donations each week to the Owen Gives Back fund and, as a whole, the team decides in which ways the funds will be used. In addition to the annual Thanksgiving lunch, the program is also used each year to purchase Christmas gifts for multiple children in foster care, as well as to donate school supplies to students at the beginning of each school year.
The Owen Security Solutions team would like to extend our gratitude to the following individuals, businesses and organizations for their donations and assistance in making this another successful community Thanksgiving meal:
