SignUpGenius Serves: Packing Boxes for Operation Christmas Child

Christmas came early at SignUpGenius this year. 

Our team was honored to come together this month to pack shoeboxes for the Operation Christmas Child campaign — and learn about the life-changing program from a shoebox recipient himself. 

Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan’s Purse, a nonprofit that is also one of SignUpGenius’ primary giving partners. Operation Christmas Child’s main packing warehouse also happens to be located in Charlotte — our hometown. 

The program provides toys, hygiene necessities, school supplies and more to children across the globe. Shoeboxes are distributed throughout the year, though efforts really ramp up around the Christmas holiday. The goal this year is to reach 12 million children. 

We’re happy to play a small part in this year’s effort!
