Back on September 23rd we met for our very first Synergy Experience, packing shoe boxes for the organization, Operation Christmas Child. Together, we collected enough items for nine shoe boxes to be sent to children in developing countries.
Packing the boxes was a great icebreaker to get to know each other better and help children in need at the same time! We all brought shoe boxes and nine of one chosen item to fill each box. Some of the things we packed in the boxes were school supplies, toys, hygiene items and UC t-shirts. We had to include something to love, something to wear, something to play with, something for personal hygiene and something special. We also wrote a personal holiday letter from the WISE group to go in each box.
We are very excited to think of the nine extra smiling faces this holiday season as the children open their presents.
