U.S. Battery Manufacturing collected 250 shoe boxes filled with toys, toiletries, and other items, as part of Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a Christian outreach program run by the Samaritan’s Purse International Relief Organization. U.S. Battery has continued to help this Christian organization collect the Christmas boxes, which are distributed to pastors and community leaders in more than 100 countries, and then given to children living in remote areas.
“For the past three years, U.S. Battery employees have filled these boxes for the needy,” said Ron Anderson, Executive VP at U.S. Battery. “Every year, the count has grown and we’re very happy that the U.S. Battery Manufacturing team of employees and their families have chosen to continue supporting this worthwhile cause.”
According to the OCC, the Christmas boxes often taken by boat, walked through jungles, or even travel 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 around the world since 1970.
