As their Christmas project, employees of WBL elected, for a second year, to participate in Operation Christmas Child.
By filling shoe boxes with small toys, school supplies, toiletries and other items, WBL employees joined others all over the United States in hopes that their “simple gifts” will help to bring joy and hope to precious children in desperate situations throughout the world. This year more than 7.6 million boys and girls in some 100 nations will be receiving these expressions of love.
During National Collection Week (November 17 – 21) the shoe boxes filled by WBL employees were delivered locally to a drop-off location and sent from there to a regional warehouse location for distribution.
