We are looking for volunteers for gift wrapping. The booth will be located in front of Spencer's in the Paddock Mall. We started on December 2nd and continue until Christmas. Some agencies are good about taking a day - please consider that if possible. (BUT ... they must know how to wrap!). We will allow high school students, who can demonstrate that they CAN "really" wrap, to earn community service hours. Please sign up even if it's just for an hour or two. All proceeds go to benefits survivors of domestic violence.View Form
