U.S. Battery Manufacturing employees again participated in Operation Christmas Child (OCC), collecting boxes filled with toys, toiletries, and other items for needy children.
OCC is a Christian outreach program run by the Samaritan’s Purse International Relief Organization, and for U.S. Battery’s sixth year of participation, employees collected 195 boxes for the program. These gift boxes are distributed to pastors and community leaders in more than 100 countries and given to children living in remote areas where these items are needed.
According to the OCC, the Christmas boxes are often taken by boat, walked through jungles, or even via camel-back to their remote destinations. Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people worldwide since 1970.
