Induction Innovations Supports Operation Christmas Child With Care Packages
Here at Induction Innovations, we believe in supporting charitable organizations both locally and nationwide throughout the year. Just this past October, we donated a portion of our proceeds of the Special Edition Pink Venom HP to the American Breast Cancer Foundation. Read more about that on our blog and about the organizations we support here.
This year during the holiday season, we have chosen to give back through a non-profit organization called Operation Christmas Child.
What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child is a non-profit organization that sends packaged shoeboxes filled with toys, personal care items, crafts, accessories, and more to underprivileged children around the world each year at Christmas time.
According to the Samaritan’s Purse website, more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox since the project began in 1993.
How Does it Work?
Whether you decide to pack a shoebox yourself or build one online, you can choose to build a box for a girl or a boy between the ages of 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Operation Christmas Child has a list of suggested items to choose from including personal care items, school supplies, clothing and accessories, crafts, toys, and one “WOW” item.
If you choose to pack the boxes yourself, you can drop them off at a designated location. Every year, Operation Christmas Children runs a National Collection Week which is the third week in November when over 4,000 drop-off locations are open. If you pack the box after this week, you can still mail it to Samaritan’s Purse, PO Box 3000 Boone, NC 28607.
If you build your box online, the staff at Operation Christmas Child will pack the box for you and send it out on your behalf.
What Did Induction Innovations Do?
The team at Induction Innovations collected items that were donated by employees and were able to fill 19 boxes that were dropped off during National Collection Week!
How Can I Get Involved?
There’s still time to pack your own box, build one online, or donate! For more information visit their website.
