U.S. Battery Manufacturing is part of Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a program run by the Samaritan’s Purse International Relief Organization. The Christian organization collects shoe boxes filled with various items such as toys, toothbrushes, soap, and books for children and sends them to pastors and community leaders in more than 100 countries. From there the boxes are distributed to children as part of a Christian outreach program.
“This is U.S. Battery’s second year participating in the program where boxes are filled according to the guidelines of the OCC,” said Ron Anderson, Executive VP at U.S. Battery. “These Christmas boxes reach children in remote areas where they are often taken by boat, walked through jungles, or even travel via camel-back to their remote destinations.”
U.S. Battery Manufacturing employees and their families participated in creating 204 Christmas Boxes that were sent to a local OCC facility for shipment overseas. Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world since 1970.
