Gift-wrapping to benefit Burlington Emergency Shelter

The Burlington Emergency Shelter will provide gift-wrapping services at the University Mall in South Burlington during the holiday season. The Shelter’s Helping Hands Gift Wrap Booth will be open every day through Dec. 24. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and until 6 p.m. on Sundays and on Christmas Eve. The booth will be located behind the big Christmas Tree and Santa’s Chair at the entrance to Sears.

The Shelter is also offering gift-wrapping services to all employers in Chittenden County if they need to have employee and customer Christmas gifts packaged for the holidays. Pick up and delivery services are available for large orders.

All donation proceeds benefit the Burlington Emergency Shelter, a Christian homeless shelter serving Burlington and Chittenden County for 27 years.
