I’d like to share our pictures from
the Operation Christmas Child warehouse in Charlotte.
We had a few minutes of training with step-by-step instructions .
Then we went to work.
This was our first year volunteering . We were kept very busy all day.
Most of the day Autumn worked as a pre-inspector. She took off rubber bands, collected money, and put on a label if needed. She then passed it on to me for inspection.
Now Autumn is doing a box inspection.
She is checking these guys for weapons.
War related items like guns and knives are not allowed in the boxes. We also looked for chocolate, liquids, food, breakable glass items, and used or damaged toys. If we found them, we took them out and replaced them with filler items we had ready at our station. We made sure all boxes were full!
It was a busy day. We loved it!
