ORGANO™ kicked this year’s holiday season into gear last week as OG employees organized their 2nd annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection. The shoeboxes – think of the shoeboxes like roomier Christmas stockings – are filled with a “wow” fun toy and smaller toys, along with other more basic items such as school supplies and hygiene products. Employees who donated are also asked to include a personal note in each box donated – making the Christmas memory complete!
Mr. Bernie and the entire Chua family kicked off the activity with a very generous donation – and then the OG Headquarter Elves went to work! At the end of the week, ORGANO™ ended up gathering and filling approximately 100 shoeboxes that were delivered to Samaritan’s Purse, the organization behind the community activity.
Samaritan’s Purse is an international charity organization with a mission to “aid hurting people” which includes victims of war, disease, disaster, poverty, famine and persecution. While Samaritan’s Purse services people of all faiths, races, gender and socio-economic standing – it’s roots are based in the Christian Bible story of the Good Samaritan. In that story, a man from the Biblical Israeli area of Samaria helps to save a stranger’s life -the origination of today’s cultural reference of being a ‘Good Samaritan.’
Now that the OG Elves are fired up, there is no stopping us! We look forward to highlighting activities in every OG region throughout this holiday season. And don’t forget your ORGANO™ Holiday Gift sets to make the season especially merry!
