Hey friends! My amazing S.I.L., Brittany, has organized a service project opportunity and would love you all to help! Here's the invitation from her:

Hello friends and family,

I'd like to invite you to participate in a service opportunity wrapping Christmas gifts to earn money for charity taking place December 9th to the 21st. Altogether we'll be wrapping gifts for 70 hours, so I'm asking for all the help you can give. The gift wrapping will take place at the Orem Barnes & Noble (330 East 1300 South), and all proceeds go to Community Action.

All you need to do is go to this link, sign up for the hours you'd like to help, then email me your name and contact information so that I can get a hold of you with the other details. The day of just show up, wrap presents, and encourage people to leave donations for Community Action. What could be better?

If you're unable to help, please forward this along to whoever might be interested, or come
in to have a gift wrapped and leave a donation yourself (check the link to verify that the Community Action group is there at that time).

Thanks and have a very Merry Christmas,


This is such a wonderful opportunity to step away from the busy hustle and bustle of the holiday season and practice your gift wrapping skill while giving back to the community! Check out more about Community Action here. Brittany has organized this event all on her own and I admire her so much for thinking of others {while I'm making my wish list....} I really do believe that service teaches us more about ourselves than any other action, and it's this time of year when people are in most need of help. Please, if you are able, sign up for a time, even just an hour, or bring your gifts to be wrapped and leave a donation. I'm signed up for one night so far, but I'd love to join YOU on the nights you volunteer. E-mail me with the dates you signed up for and I'll join you :)
