Xpera Shares the Spirit of the Holidays with Children in Need

22 November 2021

Once again, the Burnaby Xpera office participated in Operation Shoebox. Thirty seven shoeboxes were filled this year. The initiative is headed by, Sandra Harley, Regional Manager, Investigations.

The program collects gift-filled shoeboxes from donors and distributes them to needy children in the developing world. The program has brought joy and the message of hope to more than 135 million children so far. Employees were encouraged to donate new items suitable for children between the ages of 2 and 14 years old. School supplies, personal hygiene items, and small toys were some of the recommended items. Employees also had the option of making a cash donation for the purchase of items or to fill a provided shoebox themselves.
