Operation Christmas Child - Ways To Volunteer

Ways To Volunteer

Volunteering with Operation Christmas Child can take many forms but has one purpose—to bring the Gospel to children in need around the world.



Year-round volunteers with Operation Christmas Child are part of a local team that promotes and fosters community involvement with this global Samaritan’s Purse project.
