Shoeboxes of Hope | Operation Christmas Child 2023

Spreading Joy: Sending shoeboxes, and hope, with Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child

In case you’re not familiar with Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child, let us fill you in. It’s all about spreading holiday joy by sending gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need around the world.

These shoeboxes are packed with love, filled with essentials, toys, and goodies, and they bring smiles to the faces of kids who might not otherwise receive any gifts during the holiday season.

Now, you might be wondering, what exactly did we do? Well, here’s the scoop: together, as a team, we unboxed, folded, and boxed back up around 5,000 socks. Yep, you read that right – 5,000 socks! Sounds like a lot, huh? Well, let us tell you, it was a lot of fun too, and oddly satisfying!

We’ve been volunteering for this particular endeavour for many years now, and every single time our people walk back into our office with ear-to-ear smiles.

Operation Christmas Child sends over 9 million shoeboxes to deserving children EVERY YEAR. To date, they’ve packaged and sent shoeboxes full of goodies all over the world to a grand total of a staggering 209 MILLION CHILDREN.

The scale and passion of this operation is a sight to behold, and one that we are incredibly proud to support year after year.

Our team’s effort in handling those socks is just a small part of a much bigger mission. It’s about coming together as a community to make a positive impact in the lives of children who could use a little extra love and happiness.

So, to our amazing team, we want to say a heartfelt thanks. Your dedication, your enthusiasm, and your willingness to make a difference are what make Westcor more than just a company; it makes us a family with a shared mission to Build a Better World – one shoebox at a time.

We can’t wait to see what other initiatives lie ahead, and we’re excited to continue making a positive impact on our community. Together, we’re creating a brighter and more joyful world, one sock at a time! Thanks again, team – you’re simply awesome!
