After years of volunteering with the Operation Christmas Child Program, Macon County resident Sierra Womack was able to see her hard work in action during a trip to Rwanda, Africa to deliver shoeboxes.
For years Womack was a part of the hundreds of thousands of volunteers across the country that packed shoeboxes full of treats for children across the globe. Each year she would carefully select items to fit in a box to be given to a complete stranger. While her volunteer efforts were restricted to packing the boxes here, she always wanted to know more about the process and how the little gifts were delivered to children in the world. Well this year, she got the chance to find out.
