Last year our team participated in Operation Christmas Child, a charity event organized by Samaritan’s Purse in Canada to provide gifts to children in need around the world. 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.
It was so much fun that we decided to ask you to join us in packing “shoe boxes” for a good cause this year!
Date: Wednesday, 26 November 2014
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 get all the training that is 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 23 November 2014, 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.
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 2013, Canadians donated more than 664,000 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for children in need around the world.
