OneOC, formerly Volunteer Center Orange County, honored Fluor Corporation with the “Giving is Living Award” for its leadership in promoting corporate and employee volunteerism in Orange County. The honor, bestowed at OneOC’s 35th Annual Spirit of Volunteerism Awards Luncheon on Thursday, April 14 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, was received by OCBC board of director Michael Milazzo, Vice President and General Manager of Fluor Southern California Operations and Margarita Miranda, Manager of Community Relations and Public Affairs.
Nominated by 11 nonprofits, Fluor was selected from a field of 51 worthy companies for the honor because of the impact it has had on Orange County for 35 years, partnering with many local organizations and encouraging a culture of service throughout its business units. “We are proud of our long history of community involvement and the spirit of volunteerism our employees have demonstrated for decades,” said Milazzo. “Even during challenging years like 2010 was, our employees stepped up to do what’s right for the community.”
The annual luncheon honored 446 of Orange County’s volunteers which were nominated by 174 nonprofits, community organizations and companies for the time, skill and labor they have contributed to build stronger, more vibrant communities.
