Volunteering at a Processing Center
Millions of shoeboxes are collected each year. 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 a processing center. About 80,000 volunteers serve annually at our eight processing centers across the United States.

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.)
