Operation Christmas Child Processing Center Volunteers
Before shoeboxes can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each one has to be carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers like you.
Volunteer shifts for our Guelph, ON and Calgary, AB processing centers are now full for the 2017 shoebox processing season. The volunteer experience at Operation Christmas Child shoebox processing centers is fun and rewarding. Bring shoeboxes with you when you come to your shift! Learn how to pack shoeboxes here. You can also pack shoeboxes online at PackaBox.ca.
What do you do at a processing center? At our Operation Christmas Child processing centers, you will work with hundreds of other volunteers to inspect shoeboxes and ensure that the contents are appropriate for children and meet customs regulations (as outlined in our how to pack a shoebox instructions). Shoeboxes are also prepared for shipping and loaded into sea containers to begin their long journey to hurting children around the world.
