Life in general is all about giving and helping others whenever we can, this is especially true during the holidays. This Christmas season, NEWT is working with Operation Christmas Child to help bring smiles to children all across the globe.

The NEWT team visited the home of Operation Christmas Child in Kitchener and spoke with OCC’s Paula Schneider. OCC provides gift boxes for children containing daily necessities like gloves and school supplies, as well as toys and dolls to play with. These packages have been put together with love and care by many individuals and now, the OCC’s Kitchener site is where the final inspection occurs before the boxes are shipped out. This inspection is essential to ensure that the packages comply with customs regulations and rules so that the delivery of these gift boxes are not delayed.

7,000 volunteers are involved in this process to bring the spirit of Christmas to children worldwide. Please watch the video below to learn more. You can find out more about Operation Christmas Child and how to get involved here.
