For the second 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.
First of all, we took all the “shoe boxes” that were donated by our consultants and office personnel to the local processing center. Then we assisted at the processing center and helped to check and seal the “shoe boxes” ready for shipping. We were the last ones to see the contents prior to the final delivery and it was exciting to think about the looks on the faces of the recipients of each and every “shoe box”.
This year the “shoe boxes” will be distributed in Uruguay, El Salvador, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau, Venezuela, Equatorial Guinea, Costa Rica, Guinea, Haiti, Nicaragua, Chile, Senegal and even Ukraine. During the two-hour shift that we were participating in, over 700 “shoe boxes” were completed for shipping.
We would like to thank everyone who packed a “shoe box” or donated money to Operation Christmas Child. Each and every “shoe box” has been packed with love, this is what we send to children who are in need.
