We continue to monitor local guidelines and will make adjustments to protocol as necessary. Please visit https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/volunteer-to-assemble-basbo-boxes for updated information regarding volunteering with the Operation Christmas Child Build a Shoebox Online project. It’s important to visit this site regularly to stay informed of any changes that may affect your volunteer experience.

Build a Shoebox Online Fulfillment

This year, Build a Shoebox Online fulfillment will begin January 25, 2022, at the Charlotte Processing Center. Before these special gifts can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each one must be carefully packed according to the online order. Volunteer shifts are available Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 9 a.m.-9 p.m., to prepare these gifts for overseas shipment so they can be sent to children in hard-to-reach nations of the world. 

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 13 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 18 years of age or older for every four youth is required (youth volunteers include any volunteers between the ages of 13-17.)

If you have any questions regarding Processing Center volunteer opportunities, do not hesitate to contact us at OCCbasbo@samaritan.org or 800-442-9120.

We are grateful for your partnership in sharing the Gospel!
