(FINDLAY, OH, NOVEMBER 28, 2018) The American Red Cross will once again be making the holidays a little easier for shoppers by wrapping gifts at the Findlay Mall. The Red Cross Holiday Gift Wrapping booth will be open on weekends beginning Friday, November 30 and every day from Friday, December 14 through Christmas Eve. Volunteers will be working until the last present is wrapped on Christmas Eve. The complete schedule of the Holiday Gift Wrapping Booth is available at redcross.org/NCOhio.
Customers may choose from a selection of wrapping papers and coordinating bows. 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 needed to make sure all gifts are wrapped and under the tree, 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.
