Details

Abbotsford Community Services is wrapping gifts at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre with proceeds benefiting the Community Connections program for newcomers to Canada. Volunteers are needed! Stop by to get your presents wrapped or contact Luciana to help: 778.549.5146.

Last year the booth wrapped approximately 2,000 gifts for 700 customers, raising much-needed funds for ACS’ Community Connections program. The program serves new immigrants and refugees in the community through English conversation circles, citizenship preparation classes, a knitting group, volunteer matching, and drop-in soccer. Community Connections also organizes special events such as an annual Ladies’ Night celebration for International Women’s Day.

Families, organizations or businesses who want to give back this holiday season can sign up for a group volunteer shift. “It was fun to volunteer with my co-workers, and even though I’m not great at wrapping I was able to take care of the payment side,” said past volunteer and ACS employee Danielle Windecker.

This year, ACS is offering a new corporate wrapping service at the booth, where local businesses can arrange to drop off presents for their staff or clients and collect them later, wrapped and ready.
