A Message from Margie
Welcome to the Oberlin Community Services website! I hope you find it helpful. If you haven’t been able to find the information you were looking for, please give us a call or drop by; we’d be happy to help.
I have had the pleasure of being part of OCS for a long time, and I am deeply committed to our mission. I am thrilled, therefore, to have the opportunity to further that mission through my new role as Executive Director.
As I reflect on where we have been and where we are, I am deeply grateful for everyone who has been a part of our journey thus far: volunteers, clients, donors, staff and more. I am reminded that each good act, no matter how small, can make a positive difference in many people’s lives. Thank you. Moving forward, I hope more of you will join us. It is my deepest desire that OCS be a place where all feel welcome and valued, where all people feel nourished in some way. I want OCS to continue to build and bolster the greater Oberlin Community through our services; and community is built one person at a time. So, whether you just come to say hello, or to receive services, whether you donate your good ideas, your time, your energy, or make a financial contribution, I hope you will be a part of OCS as we work together to nourish, strengthen and grow this very special place.
Our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon was great. Volunteers joined us for a Mardi Gras Themed Luncheon.
Join us this Saturday for our monthly distribution. If your interested in volunteering please contact Rosa our Volunteer coordinator: email@example.com
