For the third year running our Calgary office took some time out of their busy schedule to support Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is a charity event organized by Samaritan’s Purse in Canada to provide gifts to children in need around the world.
All the “shoeboxes” that were donated by our consultants and office personnel were taken to the local processing center. We would like to thank everyone who packed a “shoebox” or donated money for Operation Christmas Child.
This year we assisted in the “Shoebox Hospital” at the processing center and helped to fix broken “shoeboxes” or toys, repack “shoeboxes” that were too full or fill “shoeboxes” that were only partially packed.
During the 2.5-hour shift that we were participating in, 770 “shoeboxes” were completed for shipping. This time, the “shoeboxes” from Calgary are distributed to Africa, Haiti and Ukraine. Thank you for bringing Christmas joy to children in need!
