OWC is celebrating its 30th anniversary and ongoing commitment to environmental causes with a fundraising program supporting clean water for kids. OWC has partnered with water charity Splash, with a goal of raising $250,000 by the end of 2018.
OWC was founded in 1988 with the drive to provide solutions for customers’ technology needs. As a conscientious corporate citizen, the company supports a number of green initiatives, including supporting organizations focused on the delivery of/access to clean water. Splash’s mission of helping kids and communities gain access to clean water and sanitation, fulfilling those basic human needs, aligns with OWC’s long-term priorities.
All funds raised during the campaign will go directly to water, sanitation and hygiene projects to support children living in urban poverty. In addition to matching donations up to $125,000, OWC will email a coupon to donors that can be used on their e-commerce site, www.macsales.com. Those who donate $50 – $499 will receive a coupon for $10 off an order, and donors who contribute in excess of $500 will receive a coupon for $50 off an order.*
OWC Founder and CEO Larry O’Connor said “OWC has been committed to green practices since our inception, and as we celebrate 30 years in business, we renew that commitment by supporting Splash, who is bringing clean water and improved sanitation to children across the globe. These solutions will have a lasting impact for generations, and empower independence and better living opportunities.” He added: “OWC is excited to have set a goal of raising $250,000 during our anniversary year, and we are dedicated to matching $125,000 in donations. We thank our customers worldwide for 30 years of their support and look forward to a successful campaign to aid those in need.”
