Wenco International Mining Systems Donated Christmas Gifts to Children
On November 20, 2015, Wenco International Mining Systems (Wenco) gave 51 present-filled shoeboxes to children via Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian humanitarian aid organization
This project, which is known as ‘Operation Christmas Child’ was established by Samaritan’s Purse in 1993 to send a Christmas present of a shoe box filled to the brim with goods to children who face war, hunger and poverty in over 100 countries in the world. It is the largest Christmas project of its kind in the world.
At Wenco most employees, including our President and Vice-president, took part in this event. While picturing the children receiving and delighting in the gifts, we packed school supplies, toothbrushes and similar hygiene items, toys and other gifts as well as a personal note into the shoeboxes.
Wenco will continue activities to support children in the future.
