If you are 13 or older, you have a wonderful opportunity to volunteer at the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Processing Center in Southern California. This is an amazing and huge operation to process donated Christmas Child Shoe boxes. The jobs include checking the boxes for inappropriate items, taping boxes, lifting heavy boxes, scanning and fixing broken boxes etc... The jobs are in an assembly line in small groups and require standing the entire time (except for breaks). We will carpool as possible or as you feel comfortable. This year our reservations are for 5 hours.
Adults who sign up may be asked to drive other students along with your own but this is optional.
Where: Samaritan's Purse Southern California Processing Center is in Fullerton this year. The address is 4200 Bonita Place, Fullerton CA 92835 See map below
