CCI Volunteers: Samaritan’s Purse Operation Shoebox

Tis the season and spirit of giving! This past Friday was weekend 1 of Cannon & Cannon volunteers at Samaritan’s Purse for Operation Christmas Child in Boone, North Carolina. The shoeboxes we worked on are going to children in Africa!

A month prior to the trip, CCI employees contributed all kinds of gifts to fill up their shoeboxes for kids ages 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14 years of age. At this time our boxes have reached Burundi and Benin, Africa.

What a treat and how touching to witness how it all comes together! To experience the warmth in everyone’s hearts and the joy that it brings to help those in need is truly a miracle!

Samaritan’s Purse in Boone has 921,000 boxes, 8 processing centers in the U.S., totaling 9.4 million boxes!! And this Friday another team of CCI volunteers head back to Boone to experience the magic


Here are some snapshots of this impressive operation.
