For the third time, our team participates in Operation Christmas Child, a charity event organized by Samaritan’s Purse in Canada to provide gifts to children in need around the world. Last year, we assisted at the processing center and helped packing “shoe boxes”. Each shoe box is filled with hygiene items, school supplies, toys and candy, and later on given to a child in need as Christmas gift.
This year, we would like to ask you again to join us in packing “shoe boxes” for a good cause!
Date: Thursday, 26 November 2015
Time: 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Place: Calgary, AB, Canada
Working at the processing center does not require any special skills and you will be provided with all the training and details that are needed.
This event is open to all our Dovre Club members including their families and friends (minimum age is 15). Please register via Dovre Club for this event. Registration ends at 19 November 2015, space is limited.
You are not a Dovre Club member, but would like to join us? Join Dovre Club or contact our Business Development Manager for Western Canada: Jana Jopko, phone: +1 403 700 1809, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to attend this volunteer event but would like to support Operation Christmas Child, shoe boxes or cash donations are warmly welcomed on the Operation Christmas Child website or can be dropped off at our Calgary office.
We look forward to serving with you to make the world a better place one “shoe box” at a time!
Operation Christmas Child was started in 1990. To date, Operation Christmas Child has collected and distributed over 100 million shoe box gifts worldwide. In 2014, Canadians donated more than 700,474 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for children in need around the world.
