Stories of Generosity

From our OE family to yours: thank you for your confidence, your trust, and your support. Because of you, OE will continue to be a place to grow for your friends, neighbors, and family.

Margaret Elia works full-time at Centier Bank in Valparaiso, but she spends much of her free time volunteering. She has shared her talent in administrative duties, assisting with various tasks at OE’s Simply Amazing Market throughout the holiday and working with our clients to get them ready for events. She has helped us with the implementation of a new HR information system and has even assisted with lunch and breakfast preparation for staff recognition.


“Margaret has a genuine concern and passion for people,” shares Kirstin Krenz, from OE’s Human Resources Department. “She happily jumps in and does whatever is needed as soon as she walks through the door, but not before saying hello and checking in with those that may need a bit of her East Coast wit or just a warm smile. She is well known throughout the agency, not only for her willingness to go above and beyond for us but she is truly a ‘friend’ to OE; staff, clients and agency.”
