Each year thousands of shoebox gifts are collected during National Collection Week in November. Before these shoebox gifts can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each shoebox gift is carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers like you. Volunteer opportunities include inspecting shoeboxes, packing shoeboxes into cartons and on to pallets, moving shoeboxes to the floor, and managing gift-in-kind and inappropriate items.
Processing center volunteer opportunities are restricted to those 14 years of age and older.
One adult chaperone (18 years or older) for every five youth (ages 14-17) is required.
