Operation Christmas Child

November 28, 2017 Admin 0


The holiday season is often time for family and giving to those that are less fortunate. With that being said the Young Workers Committee of Local 1725 out of Charlotte, NC, asked the Women’s/Human Rights Committee to team up and volunteer at Operation Christmas Child.

Every year Samaritan’s Purse coordinates Operation Christmas Child which sends shoeboxes of gifts to third world countries. This can only be completed thanks in large part to hundreds of volunteers each year. Last year in Charlotte alone, 2.4 million shoeboxes were processed through Samaritan’s Purse largest warehouse.  This year the goal is 2.5 million

Many of the issues facing veterans are the same ones facing working families, lack of good jobs, the lack of accessible health care and the increasingly uphill struggle of trying to make a better life for themselves and their families.

While wearing lapel pins, and putting magnetic red, white, and blue ribbons on your car are well intended gestures, I am asking Read More...
