Ben Oevering, Why I Care Employee Recipient


Even as a college student, Ben Oevering realized the impact of giving back through volunteerism. He recalls a time when he was building homes in Mexico for the homeless and remembers how grateful families were to have new, clean spaces to live.

As a member of the Commercial Banking team at SEFCU, Ben has coordinated numerous volunteer activities for the entire team, sharing his love of giving back with coworkers. And, as an integral part of SEFCU’s Renovate That! team he continues to use his creative and “handyman” skills to update, remodel, and refresh rooms at non-profits throughout the area.

Ben’s dedication goes beyond SEFCU’s walls. He has devoted his time to support Home Furnishings, Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless, City Mission, and Equinox Thanksgiving Meals, and previously served as vice president for the Trinity Alliance Board of Directors.
