Annual Gift Wrapping Party: Dec 18th 2008
Upcoming Local Events (Virginia, USA)
Annual Gift Wrapping Party: Dec 18th 2008 For the past several our Avesta Class has been volunteering to wrap gifts for children of incarcerated parents who are often overlooked in the discussions of crime and justice. Through Project Christmas Angel, these special children are assured that they have not been forgotten by their parent(s) and that they are still a priority in their parents' lives. The goal of this program is to unite the good will of the community with the holiday dreams of the children. The organizers need:
* Donations of new unwrapped gifts (NO clothing) for children up to 18 years of age; gifts for teens over 14 especially needed. You can bring the toys with you to the gift-wrapping party.
* Financial contributions to help cover the costs of delivery, postage, and supplies. $2,000 are needed to cover the out-of-pocket expenses.
* Volunteers to attend the Wrapping Party on December 18, 2008 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at St. Andrews Episcopal Church located at 4000 Lorcom Lane, Arlington, Virginia 22207.USA Snacks are provided.
* Volunteers to deliver the wrapped gifts to one or two families in your zip code.
