In 2023 Operation Christmas Child will have Processing Centres in New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, and Hamilton New Zealand.
Scroll down for 2023 locations and dates.
There are a range of jobs to be completed from checking shoeboxes, to packing outer cartons and filling shipping containers. Tasks will be allocated when you check-in, and training will be provided. Please wear comfortable clothing and enclosed footwear, and bring a water bottle and your own food.
During the weeks surrounding National Collection, volunteer drivers collect boxes from schools, churches and businesses and drop them into Processing Centres using their own vehicle or hired van.
Be part of the final link in the Australian and New Zealand shoebox chain, loading and praying over cartons of processed shoeboxes into shipping containers, bound to bring great joy to children around the world.
