Description

How to book your free sessions to check shoeboxes at the Processing Centre

Simply select the date you’re interested in and then click ‘Register’ to see and select tickets for each shift you’re interested in (dont be put off by the fact they all say 10am). You can book multiple shifts on one day but to book for different days you will need to start from the home page again.

If booking for a group you do not need their details yet and you can edit numbers through eventbrite at any time so reserve your space now before days start to fill up.

We appreciate that sometimes your availability may not match a full shift but where possible we do ask people to use the booking system as it helps us to improve our volunteer experience. Just advise us on arrival if you are likely to need to leave early.

An amazing experience at our processing centre in the heart of England

A vital part of the Operation Christmas Child year takes place behind the scenes in the immediate weeks that follow drop-off locations being open. It’s during this period that thousands of generous supporters donate their time to manually check hundreds of thousands of shoeboxes for safety and customs compliance before they’re sent to children in need around the world.

Thanks to the financial support of Operation Christmas Child International Headquarters, we are delighted to have acquired a five-year lease on fixed premises in the West Midlands. This allows us to make our volunteers feel at home and set ourselves up for maximum efficient processing.

We are able to comfortably accommodate 80 volunteers at a time during processing season and full training is provided. You’ll be supported by experienced supervisors and each of our ‘team tables’ can fit up to 12 people. All this means you’ll be able to enjoy a sense of community and team spirit with around an amazing 150 shoeboxes per hour can be checked.

We welcome individuals, families, work groups, church groups indeed anyone who can spare a few hours to make a difference whilst having fun.

Our West Midlands Centre is open from Tuesday 19th November through to Friday 13th December.

On Tuesdays to Fridays we run three shifts:

10am - 1pm

1pm - 4pm

7pm - 9pm

On Saturdays we run:

10am - 1pm

1pm - 4pm

We are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
