Connecting with other volunteers who have the same desires and interests is exciting and invigorating! How often we might feel we are alone in this journey. If you have a love for Operation Christmas Child, DID YOU KNOW that there are “Area Teams” of volunteers all over the country? I have them listed here! You can find your group!! and connect with your Operation Christmas Child Area Team Facebook Group!
These Area Teams may have special speakers available, hold fun events during the year (perhaps Project Leader workshops), have ideas and materials to share, and many might even hold packing parties. You are not alone – connect with them!
Do you know YOUR Area Team?
There are 2 ways to find them! You could contact YOUR REGIONAL OFFICE (the country has been sectioned up into “Regions” such as NorthWest, SouthEast, etc.). You can contact YOUR regional office to ask them for the contact information for your local team.
Many teams have GROUPS on Facebook – if you have a “facebook” account, you can join their group and find out all the latest news and events that are going on in your area!
Find your group and connect with your Operation Christmas Child Area Team Facebook Group
I’ve rebuilt this list from my old “ClipwithPurpose” website and I know I am missing many groups. If you know of one not listed – please comment and I will add you!

There are also 3 very active GENERAL Operation Christmas Child Facebook Groups you might enjoy – But make sure to follow MY Facebook Page at ClipwithPurpose!
