Last week, a Fresno manufacturing business stopped production for about an hour to participate in a charity project: Operation Christmas Child.
Trail-Gear, Inc., which makes off-road auto parts, filled 200 shoe boxes with small toys and personal items to be shipped to poor children around the world. The company participated for the first time in its seven-year history. Read my story here.
Rosana Faegre, the company’s vice-president of operations, emailed me Wednesday to say the company got a bunch of phone calls and donations after the story ran.
Faegre enlisted the help of some children and their mothers to put together an additional 38 boxes that were donated to the program.
