For the Third Consecutive Year, Our Team Donated Gifts and Volunteered with Operation Christmas Child

December is a jam-packed month filled with holiday parties, way too many sweets in the office and time spent with family and friends. But most of all, it’s the season of giving. That’s why we’ve made it a tradition at SDR to volunteer with Operation Christmas Child, a nonprofit initiative that ships millions of shoeboxes filled with gifts overseas to children in need.

This year, the eight Operation Christmas Child distribution centers across the U.S. will ship out approximately 9.6 million shoeboxes to more than 100 countries. We’re lucky enough to have one of those eight distribution centers located in Colorado, so we closed up the office for a day in December and headed down to lend a hand for a great cause. While it may not seem like it from some of the photos below, we stayed mostly on task and prepped several hundred shoeboxes for shipment. Click on the photos below to view larger or as a slideshow.

Happy Holidays from SDR Ventures! Here’s to a great 2018.
