Wiregrass Food Bank Need Gift Wrappers

By  | 

The Wiregrass area United Way Food Bank needs your help to wrap presents.

The proceeds for the gift wrapping benefit the food bank's Brown Bag program.

Until Christmas Eve volunteers are wrapping gifts at Sears in Dothan for those who may not have the time nor the skill.

All food bank officials ask is for a small donation, that will benefit the Brown Bag program.

The program provides groceries to needy senior citizens on a monthly basis.

"If anyone wants to work, we're here from 7 in the morning, to 8 at night. If you want to work for one hour or for four hours, wrapping is fun. "Well, I don't know how to wrap"...well, help someone else whose wrapping or you can pick up the paper," Food Bank Representative Shirley Henderson says.

For the past six years, they've held the fundraiser, and raised $6,000.

This year $300 has been raised.
