Corning Optical Fiber and Cable Business Participates in United Way Day of Action
Recently, six Optical Fiber and Cable (OFC) colleagues were joined by OFC General Manager John Igel and wife Becky Igel at Pathways, Inc. to build two wheelchair-accessible planter beds for the United Way Day of Action 2017.
“Our ‘Day of Action’ project was both fun and rewarding,” Igel said. “I enjoyed working with my OFC colleagues and getting to know them better outside of our day-to-day work. There is something particularly rewarding about doing good things together.”
Pathways is a not-for-profit organization that reaches the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes, and Rochester, New York, areas. It impacts nearly 2,000 individuals through its core programs, which include Residential Services, Community-Based Services, Educational Services, and Home & Habilitation Services.
Each OFC volunteer was gifted with a hand-painted flower pot by the folks at Pathway for their help and participation.
“This was a great opportunity to work with my peers and colleagues, and partner with a local organization,” said Emilee, another volunteer from Corning working with the group. “I’m excited for future opportunities like these where we can have a positive impact on those in our community.”
