Wrapping Christmas presents is one of those polarizing activities you either love or loathe. I’m in the latter category because I can never get those corners perfectly folded. My Christmases now consist of gift bags, a much easier way to avoid tape and bows and perfect corners.
On Sunday, I’m guessing there will be a lot of old-school precision wrapping going on at the Ed Endres Boys & Girls Club, as more than 3,000 gifts for area children need to be wrapped by Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana staff and volunteers. The toys and trinkets, which were donated by the Optimist Club of Louisville and Toys for Tots, will go to nearly 1,000 Boys & Girls Club members ages 6-18.
If you enjoy making your corners neat and tidy, you’re welcome to help them wrap from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 13. So far, registered volunteers include the Optimist Club of Louisville, members of the Spalding University Women’s Basketball Team, Louisville Collegiate School, Chi Omega Alumnae, the Louisville Film Society and, hopefully, you.
The five area Boys & Girls Clubs help provide a safe, supportive environment for young people during after-school hours. They serve more than 4,000 youth throughout Louisville and Southern Indiana.
The Ed Endres Boys & Girls Club is located at 1721 Ekin Ave. in New Albany.
