Many of you have been involved at the grassroots level, gathering boxes to send to children around the world with the message of true hope in Christ. Last year YES! co-founder Judy Wick was blessed to travel with Samaritan's Purse to the jungles of Guyana in South America to witness firsthand the distribution of these boxes to children---along with discipleship classes in session that began with these gifts of Christmas boxes.
Between these two amazing points, the Operation Christmas Child boxes land at processing centers at eight locations throughout the United States to ensure the boxes are carefully inspected and ready for overseas shipment. In addition to the gifts, these boxes go out with colorful literature to guide children in their walk with Jesus.
YES! is partnering again with the Southern California (West Coast) processing center. This year's location is in Riverside County: 1560 East Sixth St. Corona, CA 92879. Additional information on nearby hotels will be available shortly.
This year YES! will be enlisting the help of 20 volunteers for two separate morning shifts for the first two days of December 2017. Each shift will have an orientation available and will run from 9 AM to 1 PM daily.
You are invited to sign up for one or two YES! shifts, based on your physical capacity and time constraints. Unless arranged separately through your church or other group, you will be on your own for food, transportation and lodging.
For other locations and/or time slots, please connect directly with Operation Christmas Child. Other locations are Baltimore/Washington, Boone (NC), Charlotte, Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Minneapolis, and Denver.
Space through YES! is limited, so please sign up now directly through Operation Christmas Child::
