Raleigh, NC - Oak Grove Technologies is participating in the 2008 Operation Christmas Child project. Operation Christmas Child is run by Samaritan’s Purse® International Relief.
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has given hope and joy to children in need all over the world. Volunteers who contribute to Operation Christmas Child pack a shoe box full of various gifts to bring a smile to a young child’s face. Over 61 million shoe boxes have been packed, shipped, and delivered across the globe over the last 15 years.
“It is really important to myself and the employees of my company to get involved with programs that support those in need,” said Mark Gross, President and CEO of Oak Grove Technologies. “We feel success on all angles when we contribute towards a good cause. Throughout the year we take pride in supporting many events involving Veterans and wounded warriors. Anything we can do to help, we will. I hope our contributions towards Operation Christmas Child will bring smiles to many faces during this holiday season.”
