We filled shoeboxes with gifts that we hope will bring joy to boys and girls around the globe. Giving just for the sake of giving is part of the magic of the season.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) December 04, 2013
Foundation Financial Group employees participated in Operation Christmas Child as part of the corporation’s Giving is Living campaign. Employees from FFG’s Atlanta Regional Sales Center, located at 100 Galleria Parkway #1400, donated gifts that will be mailed to children around the world.
“Foundation Financial believes in the importance of giving, and this campaign gives us an opportunity to give to in-need children everywhere. I’m proud to share this beautiful tradition with my FFG family,” said FFG Event Coordinator Melissa Palmer, who has supported Operation Christmas Child for several years.
Through FFG’s Giving is Living campaign, employees and teams filled shoeboxes with gifts for children. The shoeboxes were festively decorated and organized by age and gender. Foundation Financial employees sent items like small toys, school supplies, hygiene products, clothing, and other accessories.
The boxes were taken to one of the many Operation Christmas Child drop-off locations in Atlanta. Participants who wished to track their shoebox as it travels across the globe could do so by donating $7 and printing out a unique barcode for tracking. The donation helped to cover the shipping cost.
“We filled shoeboxes with gifts that we hope will bring joy to boys and girls around the globe,” continued Palmer. “Giving just for the sake of giving is part of the magic of the season.”
Operation Christmas Child is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, a nonprofit organization that supports children in remote areas of the world. Over the past two decades, over 100 million boys and girls have experienced joy from simple gift boxes prepared by strangers and delivered through Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization, has been providing spiritual and physical aid to people in need since 1970.
