Operation Christmas Child looks to bring to kids around the world
FLINT, Mich. - Christmas came a little early this year thanks to Santa's little helpers at O-L-V Investment Group in downtown Flint.
Employees and their families worked together to pack 600 shoe boxes filled with everything from toys to washcloths and soap.
It's all a part of Operation Christmas Child, and will go to kids all across the world.
Employees say this is a great way to give back to others, and to also teach their kids a little something or two.
"Things like our kids take for granted, so that's one thing we love. Our kids being able to be exposed to that. That a wash cloth and a bar of soap is exciting to kids in other countries and they aren't used to that,” said Libby Vanvalin of OLV.
Libby says these gifts will go to kids ages 2 to 14.
