The Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party on Sunday, November 13 was a HUGE SUCCESS! Thank you to those who brought in donation items, and thank you to our many volunteers who donated their time. These boxes will be sent to children around the world with a special message of God’s love for them.

The final count of boxes packed on November 13 was 1,926!

Check out the video below to see our volunteers in action.

If you were not able to join us for the packing party, you can still help! There are spots available on Saturday, Dec. 10 from 9am-1pm to help at the processing center in Eagan!

What are the roles at a processing center? 

Every volunteer in the processing center plays an important role in the ministry of Operation Christmas Child, ensuring the integrity and successful delivery of the gifts. Volunteers in the processing center form teams and perform all the tasks necessary to process the shoeboxes at one location. Teams are responsible for removing financial contributions from the shoeboxes, inspecting the gifts, sorting inappropriate items, working with filler items, separating boxes by age and gender, and boxing shoeboxes in designated cartons. Due to the fast-paced environment of the warehouse and changing needs, you may be asked to do different tasks. We appreciate your flexibility.
Volunteers need to be registered, and signed up in Sign-Up Genius in order to participate. Saturday, December 10th from 9-1pm (check-in by 8:45am) at 985 Aldrin Drive, Eagan, MN.  You must be 13 years of age to volunteer. If you have any questions please contact Margie: 952-220-5886.
