TOP donates 100 shoeboxes in support of Operation Christmas Child

17th Dec 2019

Every year, The One Point find a charitable organisation to help and donate to during the Christmas season. For 6 years in a row, Samaritan's Purse's 'Operation Christmas Child' has been our charitable event of choice. Like the past few years, we banded together a group of staff to help assemble and fill 100 shoeboxes for 100 disadvantaged girls and boys around the world.

We sent out the TOP Foundation Newsletter update, which included an invitation aimed at all staff from The One Point and IT@Spectrum, encouraging them to donate a small amount of their time on the day of putting together the shoeboxes, to lend a helping hand. We had staff from both companies helping out in our event space throughout the day, assembling the boxes, packing, labelling and preparing them to be collected by Samaritan's Purse. Everyone had a great time, as always!

The shoeboxes that we put together and donated to Samaritan's Purse, were for children between the ages of 5 and 9. Each box, we filled with with hygiene items, fun toys and puzzles, colouring books and crayons, stickers, and sweets. We even had some staff donations, adding to the Christmas cheer. Once the boxes were packed, they were stored in our warehouse, where they waited patiently to be collected and distributed around the world to make a child's Christmas brighter.
