U.S. Battery Manufacturing employees collected 218 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’s employees have spearheaded this project over the last five years to help the Christian charity collect the Christmas boxes. The boxes are then distributed to pastors and community leaders in more than 100 countries and given to children living in remote areas.
According to the OCC, the Christmas boxes are 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.
