Urbana, IA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
For the ninth year in a row, online retailer SpaceSavers.com is offering special pricing on bulk quantity sets of its Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. The clear plastic, six-quart boxes from Sterilite are available in sets of 12, 24, 48, and 72.
Operation Christmas Child was created in 1993 by Samaritan’s Purse®, a non-denominational Evangelical Christian organization that provides aid to people in need worldwide. The program encourages individuals to pack a shoebox with gifs intended for one child in an age category of their choice. Packed boxes are then labeled and dropped at a designated location, along with a $7 donation to cover shipping and other program costs. Boxes are delivered to selected countries and can be tracked to its destination, if the donation is made online.
SpaceSavers Product Specialist, Brandi Bowers, says the Operation Christmas Child box program has been a rewarding one for the company. While the boxes used for Operation Christmas Child don’t have to be plastic, the company saw the special bulk box program as a way to contribute to the worthwhile cause, as plastic boxes are particularly valuable in countries with limited resources.
“Unlike cardboard boxes, plastic boxes can be used after the initial gift delivery, because they can be used for carrying water, or storing grains or other food for protection from insects and the elements,” said Bowers. “We hope that by offering special prices on bulk quantity sets of boxes, it will encourage individuals to participate in the program.”
National collection week for the Operation Christmas Child boxes program is slated for November 18-25th. More information, including drop-off location sites is available on the Samaritan’s Purse® website and on the SpaceSavers blog.
