Join the Box of Joy Team

Make a difference - serve with Team Joy

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of needy children by being a member of Team Joy? This is a fun and fulfilling way to volunteer either long-term or short-term.

Short Term

Serve anywhere from from half a day to a few weeks, usually as part of a Drop-off Center Team during Box of Joy Week (in November) or as part of the Screening Center Team during the screening process in south FL (late Nov. to mid-Dec.)

Long Term

Serve anywhere from several weeks during the key month of November, a few months during the Box of Joy season (August to December), to year-round. Drop-off Center Coordinators and other  support positions are available in every community in the U.S. as well as the Box of Joy office in Boca Raton, FL.

"Every box we prepare includes a little bit of happiness in it, as well as the message that God is with all of us.”
