Host – Volunteer

Region: Calgary, AB

Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian international relief organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.  Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. One of the ways Samaritan’s Purse Canada (SPC) has had open doors to share the gospel is through the Shoebox gift program of Operation Christmas Child (OCC).

Samaritan’s Purse Canada is seeking volunteers who are friendly and outgoing. Our Hosts have various roles in the OCC Processing Center, all of which support the efficient processing of donated shoebox gifts. These roles include; Greeters, Parking Lot Attendants, and Processing Center Maintenance. The purpose of these roles is to contribute to a missional atmosphere that is friendly, welcoming, and evangelistic. The collective goal of all Hosts is to create a positive customer service experience for donors. As an integral member of the OCC department, this role will help SPC carry out its mission and objectives through participation in daily prayer ministry.
