Processing Center Dates
In 2017, we will begin our processing season on November 21st
and finish no later than Saturday, December 16th - although our exact
completion day is not predictable. Registration for the dates in November
and December will begin the week of October 2nd. We are closed on Thanksgiving
Day and Sundays.
Volunteer at a Processing Center
Millions of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week.
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 8 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 for every
four youth is required (youth volunteers include any volunteers between
the ages of 13-17.)
