Thousands of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week: November 12 – 18.
Before these special gifts 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! You can help prepare shoeboxes for delivery by volunteering
at one of our two Processing Centers, located in Calgary, AB and Woodstock, ON. About 20,000 volunteers serve
annually at our processing centers.
We have opportunities at the processing centers for volunteer groups of all sizes. You can volunteer as an individual
or with family and friends.
All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age, regardless of a student’s grade level. Due to the warehouse environment,
we can allow no exceptions to this age requirement. At least one chaperone for every five youth is required (youth
volunteers include any volunteers between the ages of 14-17)
