[message_box title=”Parents and Students Volunteer at Processing Centers” color=”blue”]1516-OCC-plant2 A number of parents and students not only created boxes, but they helped with the processing and distribution of the boxes at the only west coast processing plant.

“It was so wonderful to play a small part in sending these shoeboxes to children all around the world! The morning we volunteered, our team learned that the shoeboxes were traveling to Peru, which gave a glimpse of how far-reaching these gifts would be. OCC expected close to one million shoeboxes from that facility alone and had already processed about 236,000 shoeboxes. I felt a step closer in touching the lives of children around the world. As the shoebox inspector, it occurred to me that the next time these shoeboxes would be opened would be by the hands of the recipient child. All the more, I tried to place love and care into each one that I processed. My hope and prayer is that beyond these tangible gifts, the heart of each child would come to know the best gift this Christmas — Jesus Christ!”
