Prezzies being wrapped for a good cause at Hamilton Place
The winter holidays are fast approaching, so many stores have extended holiday hours, giving shoppers more time to find that perfect gift. Some offer gift-wrapping services this time of year—but organizations like Chattanooga’s Kids on the Block (CKOB), offer a way to support a good cause while having your presents wrapped.
Known for their educational puppetry programs in schools and communities throughout Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia and Alabama, CKOB’s mission is to “educate children on social concerns and differences, giving them skills to stay safe and healthy.”
The wrapping project is celebrating its 31st year, and over 200 volunteers are involved for CKOB’s Annual Holiday Gift Wrap fundraising event with two gift-wrapping stations at Hamilton Place Mall: an upstairs booth across from the Tourist Information Center and a downstairs booth in front of JCPenney.
Both booths will remain open during the mall’s extended hours through Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Gift-wrapping services are $3 and up, depending on size, and all proceeds benefit CKOB.
In addition to having presents of all shapes and sizes wrapped, CKOB offers scheduled pick-up and drop-off services to your home or office for shoppers on the go, and invites the public to volunteer with CKOB and help wrap gifts.
So, show your support for a good cause and get those presents wrapped!
Call (423) 757-5259 for volunteer opportunities or to make a reservation for CKOB’s pick-up and drop-off services.
