The American Red Cross of Hancock, Seneca and Wyandot Counties will once again be making the holidays a little easier by wrapping gifts at the Findlay Village Mall. The Red Cross Holiday Gift Wrapping booth will be open selected hours on weekends beginning Saturday, December 6 and daily beginning Monday, December 1. Volunteers will be working until the last present is wrapped on Christmas Eve.
Customers may choose from a selection of wrapping papers and coordinating bows. It is helpful if customers can bring a box in which to wrap their package. The gift wrapping service is offered for a donation to benefit America Red Cross services. Services supported include Disaster Relief, Health and Safety training, Blood Services and Services to Armed Forces and Military Families. The Red Cross gift wrapping booth will be located across from the Mall’s service desk.
Volunteers are the key to getting all the gifts wrapped, says Executive Director Todd James. “Volunteering for gift wrapping is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. We often have families and groups working together. They have a lot of fun and they enjoy helping the Red Cross.” James says that along with dozens of individuals who volunteer, clubs, school groups and offices often register as a team.
