Working in the United States

Our international headquarters is in Boone, North Carolina, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Most of our U.S.-based employees work in Boone. Just down the mountain from Boone, in North Wilkesboro, we also have staff at our headquarters for North American Ministries and Mission Aviation Services. Across the nation, in or near large metro areas, we have 13 regional Operation Christmas Child offices. These offices support OCC within a specific geographical area. Following a disaster response in the United States we may have opportunity to coordinate a recovery and rebuild program in the area. When this happens we hire short-term staff to work alongside an army of volunteers to clear debris, make repairs, and rebuild homes for vulnerable people whose lives have been turned upside down by natural disaster. These rebuild locations vary since we respond to disasters from coast to coast.

Working and living in Boone, North Carolina

Boone acquired its name from the famous pioneer Daniel Boone, who on several occasions camped at a site generally agreed to be within the present city limits. Its population is 18,130 and is located atop the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Boone has the highest elevation (3,300 feet) of any town of its size (more than 10,000 population) east of the Mississippi River. Boone is a beautiful place to live and work. Residents and visitors take advantage of a four-season playground for sports and outdoor activities such as skiing, whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, ziplining and horseback riding. Boone has been recognized by travel journalists as an “ultimate outdoor adventure destination” in the Southeast. It is also home to Appalachian State University and the Appalachian Regional Medical Center.
