More than 700 Live Oakers participated in the charitable service project on Wednesday, July 20, to benefit the greater Wilmington community. Employees packed plastic zip bags with shampoo, deodorant, soap, microfiber towels, combs, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. The event was part of Live Oak’s philanthropic mission to align corporate funds with employee interests in organizations that support and promote education, health, human services, and workforce development.
