Volunteer Opportunities

Every year, hundreds of thousands of shoeboxes are lovingly packed and collected around the nation that will be given to children overseas. Before being sent to the receiving countries, we need to process, or inspect, each shoebox to ensure all items are appropriate. We seek volunteers to help us at do this at Processing Centres.
