Operation Christmas Child Australia and New Zealand counts on thousands of volunteers to collect and process hundreds of thousands of shoebox gifts every year. These volunteers take on many roles, all with one wonderful purpose: to bring the Gospel to children in need around the world.

Year-round Connect Volunteers

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.
