Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 2, 2006
Small nationwide shipments are A Better Tripp Moving and Storage Company’s niche, but during the holidays they specialize in fulfilling the dreams of children around the world. In place of the usual truckloads of antiques, couches, family heirlooms, bedroom sets, and other household goods, A Better Tripp has a truckload of goodies for kids. A Better Tripp’s owner, David Tripp, is a member of Windwood Presbyterian Church, one of the hundreds of churches nationwide that partake in Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child
An event of Samaritan’s Purse, a charity devoted to helping needy children throughout the world, Operation Christmas Child makes Christmas hopes and dreams a reality for millions of children. Since the event’s inception in 1993, over 39 million gift-wrapped shoeboxes have been collected and hand delivered to needy children in some 120 countries. Families all over the United States fill the shoeboxes with toys, candy, school supplies, and personal hygiene items and donate them to Operation Christmas Child through their churches. Over seven million shoebox gifts were collected and distributed to children in 95 countries last year alone.
Windwood Presbyterian Church and A Better Tripp
In 2004, Windwood Presbyterian Church, along with Windwood Christian Academy and Adventure Preschool, collected over 300 shoebox gifts. The shoebox gifts donated this year will be given not only to foreign children, but to the young Gulf Coast hurricane victims.
For the past two years, David Tripp and A Better Tripp Moving and Storage Company have played an essential role in the gift drive by donating the use of a company truck. This year, a brand new A Better Tripp company truck large enough to hold the entire contents of a four bedroom house was parked outside the Windwood Presbyterian Church. “There is nothing more fulfilling than knowing you are helping to give the gift of true Christmas spirit to children,” said David Tripp. Beginning on Wednesday, November 17th, members of the church and community filled the truck with hundreds of shoebox gifts. On Monday, November 22nd, David Tripp’s team drove the truck full of goodies to Houston’s main Operation Christmas Child collection center.
