Ways To Volunteer
Volunteering with Operation Christmas Child can take many forms but has one purpose—to bring the Gospel to children in need around the world.
Year-round volunteers with Operation Christmas Child are part of a local team that promotes and fosters community involvement with this global Samaritan’s Purse project.
Project Leaders mobilize their church or group to increase involvement in Operation Christmas Child.
Serve as a Drop-off Location
By serving as a Drop-off location your church has the opportunity to engage with families, businesses, schools, and groups from your community as they come through your doors to drop-off shoebox gifts. This creates a unique and powerful opportunity to welcome, connect and pray with them.
Be a part of carefully inspecting shoebox gifts at our Calgary processing centre! It’s the last stop before international shipment.
Make Handmade Quality Crafts
Crafting beautiful items for your shoebox gifts is a great way to bless children in need around the world. Your special gifts will send a powerful message of love and impact the lives of many precious children who may never have received such a gift before.
