Operation Christmas Child is near and dear to our company and family. Our family has donated our time and money over the last ten years to make sure that boys and girls around the world wake up on Christmas morning with a gift. 'Tis the Season' and for us this means giving back. Within the last three years, Curry's has personally filled hundreds of boxes with goodies to make sure a child does not go with out. We take things like underwear, toothbrushes and toothpaste, books, crayons and board games for granted. Yet it makes such a difference in the life of the less fortunate. It puts life into perspective and reminds us to count our blessings both big and small.
Operation Christmas Child is just a small way we can give back. This year we had over 25 boxes that were filled and donated by our wonderful customers and our Curry's team. We love it when our community catches the vision of 'giving back' and partners with us to make a difference.
Our plan in the coming weeks is to head into the city of Atlanta and help pack and ship boxes out. Members of our family, our Curry's employees and even some of their children will be involved in making sure that this Christmas is a special one for several little boys and girls.
