TraceGains Participates in Making Christmas a Reality for Children in Need

TraceGains' Families Pitch In at Operation Christmas Child

When we get involved in outreach projects like Operation Christmas Child, it shows our kids what a joy it is to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
— Dana Johnson Downing, TraceGains' Director of Industry & Policy
DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2016 / -- TraceGains, the leading Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) software solution for food and consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, participated in “Operation Christmas Child” this week assembling shoebox gifts that will be delivered to children overseas living in extreme poverty or affected by war, disease, and natural disaster.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 135 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.

Several TraceGains employees and their families got involved in the project and enjoyed shopping, packing, and decorating the packages that will help make Christmas a reality for children in need.

“It is nice to work for a company that cares about children and families in need,” said TraceGains’ Director of Industry & Policy Dana Johnson Downing. “When we get involved in outreach projects like Operation Christmas Child, it shows our kids what a joy it is to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.”

Downing’s stepkids, Jack (age 13) and Mackenzie (age 15) helped deliver the shoebox gifts to an Operation Christmas Child drop-off location in the Denver Metro area. While there, the kids learned from volunteers that it is more common for donations to be designated to younger girls, so the kids are already discussing items they would choose and donate for teen boys next year so even more kids can experience the joy of receiving a gift.

Although the Operation Christmas Child collection drive ended November 21, donations can still be made online. You can "Build a Box" online or make another cash donation.
