Packing Day Information


Additional (Auckland only) volunteering opportunities

For corporate or business teams, and individual volunteers

During the week prior to Packing Day there is also opportunity for volunteering with set-up and preparation. Each year individuals and small teams from charities and businesses enthusiastically work together to get things prepared and to begin packing Christmas Boxes. These days run from 8am until 3pm, with flexibility, and will be on:

  • Tuesday 3rd December

  • Thursday 5th December

  • Friday 6th December

Other NZ Packing Locations Information

Besides Auckland, Christmas Box Packing also takes place in the following New Zealand locations on the same day:

  • Kaikohe

  • Whangarei

  • Hamilton

  • Tauranga

  • Wellington

  • Christchurch

  • Dunedin

Each of these locations has their own co-ordinating team who manage their Packing Day and so each local schedule will vary.

These local co-ordinators also manage their own volunteer registers. Due to the popularity of Christmas Box Packing Day events some of these locations open their registrations for just one or two days before reaching capacity. To enquire about these packing locations, please click here
