Help needed packing 'Boxes of Joy'

Next date: Jan 26, 2022 - click here for time schedule - English

Cross Catholic Outreach, a Catholic global relief and development non-profit, has collected nearly 100,000 Boxes of Joy that will be shipped to poverty-stricken children in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Granada, Colombia and Guatemala. Volunteers are urgently needed to screen the boxes to make sure all gifts are safe and appropriate for kids, and prepare them for shipping to each destination country — while having lots of fun.

COVID-19 restrictions prevented completion of the project before Christmas, thus Cross Catholic Outreach needs help to get these gifts into the hands of children as soon as possible. Several shifts are available for volunteers during the month of January at the Box of Joy screening center: 10243 NW 62 Street, Doral, Florida 33178. Volunteers can sign up for a shift here: https://bit.ly/3JHDuag.

Cross Catholic Outreach adheres to the CDC Guidelines for the pandemic, and will have hand sanitizer available for all volunteers and encourage volunteers to wear masks. The warehouse where the Boxes of Joy will be processed is a large facility with ventilation, and tables are spaced to accommodate social distancing.
