Organizations invited to raise funds by wrapping gifts

Community organizations are invited to participate in Project Gift Wrap, a fun, easy way to raise funds and promote a cause while spreading holiday cheer.

The Volunteer Coordinators of Marquette County are accepting registrations for the annual event which takes place Nov. 30-Dec. 24 at the Westwood Mall.

At the Project Gift Wrap booth, shoppers make a cash donation to have their purchases wrapped with holiday paper and bows provided by the Westwood Mall. Representatives of organizations work the booth in three-hour shifts. Half of the proceeds for each shift go to the working organization. The other half goes to the Volunteer Coordinators of Marquette County to sponsor the annual Marquette County Outstanding Volunteer Awards celebration in April and other volunteer-related activities.

Shifts are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. To register a group for shifts, call Jill Rady of Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes at 920-955-3438 or email jrady@gsnwgl.org.
