Branded Group’s Adele Read Honored with OneOC Spirit of Volunteerism Award

OneOC recently honored Branded Group Facilities Coordinator Adele Read with a Spirit of Volunteerism Award, which recognizes volunteers for their service to the community. For her commitment to giving back to those most in need, Read, among other nominees, was recently celebrated at the 43nd Annual Spirit of Volunteerism Awards Gala.

During the past year, Read volunteered over 32 hours with various non-profit organizations. She built homes with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, cleaned California beaches with the Connex (previously the Professional Retail Store Maintenance Association), raised awareness for autism at Disneyland, and sorted pallets of food at Second Harvest Food Bank.

“It feels great to help people in need,” Read said when asked about her commitment to giving back. “I’m grateful to work for an organization that provides an abundance of volunteer opportunities for their team members.”

Additionally, Branded Group was nominated by Habitat for Humanity of Orange County for the OneOC Giving is Living award.

“Although we did not win the award, I’m honored that Branded Group was nominated,” Kurland said. “My team and I are privileged to volunteer alongside our partners at Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. Our team always looks forward to the opportunity to build sustainable homes for those most in need.”

Branded Group’s award-winning One-for-One program is the centerpiece of the company’s social impact program, which has benefitted multiple non-profit organizations, including Habitat for Humanity of Orange County and Second Harvest. The program transforms every completed client service call into one minute of volunteer time.

As one of the oldest awards program in Orange County, OneOC’s mission is to accelerate nonprofit success by providing volunteer, training, consulting and business services to help nonprofits become more efficient and effective.
