Christmas is on it’s way early this year with WORD Rock Drills 3rd Annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party!
Founded through faith
Every team member at WORD works throughout the year to be the best version of themselves, embodying the core values of the company. Being a servant to others, diligent, positive, humble, and a listener are values that each WORD employee treasures. So, as the holiday season approaches each year, the participation in Operation Christmas Child has become a great tradition in servitude.
Operation Christmas Child (OCC), an extension of the Samaritans Purse non-profit organization, is a program that sends gifts to children in need around the world. These gifts come in the form of shoeboxes stuffed with essentials such as washcloths, cups, soap, eating utensils and a WOW toy to bring a smile to these children’s faces. The best part, ALL of these boxes are donated by organizations and individuals across the U.S. in the spirit of giving.
This years goal …. 150 Boxes!!
With our goal in mind we set to it! Each team member brining in as many items as they could to fill the boxes. Monster trucks, baby dolls, coloring books, rubber balls … You name it! If it fit it shipped!
The packing party was a HUGE success! With the help of our team and their families, we all came together and pack our goal of 150 boxes. We even had toys leftover that were donated to another organization packing shoeboxes this year.
With our 3rd year of Operation Christmas Child a success this is a tradition we hope to carry into the future as an embodiment of our company core values during the holiday season!
