Volunteer with Operation Christmas Child by Preparing Shoebox Gifts
at the Sendai Processing Center
Together with many other dedicated volunteers in Japan; we are able to share the love of Jesus Christ and the joy of Christmas with thousands of boys and girls in the Philippines. Each precious gift is carefully inspected and prepared for overseas shipment by caring people like you. As an OCC supporter, by previously packing and donating a Shoebox, you are eligible to participate at the Sendai Processing Center. Children, under the age of 15 years, must be accompanied by an adult.
The processing center is located at Grape City Wine Studios. The address is 3-1-3 Murasakiyama Izumi-ward Sendai-city, Miyagi Prefecture.
The available volunteer dates are November 20-22 and November 25-29. You can choose to work one or two shifts beginning at 9:30 to 1:00 with the second shift from 2:00 - 5:30. If you plan on working both shifts please pack a lunch or you may bring 500 yen to purchase a Bento Box (Japanese style lunch).
To volunteer at the processing center please email, call, or fax in your name, email address, phone number, and the desired dates and shifts. Individual or group requests will be considered. Due to the limited space in the processing center we are unable to accommodate drop-in volunteers at this time and registration will close once all of the slots have been filled. You will receive an email confirmation from the Samaritan's Purse Office confirming your dates and times.
