Something being stripped completely bare usually does not have positive connotations. However, when the thing being stripped bare is the “to be wrapped” section of the part of center dedicated to the Children’s Birthday Project, we can certainly live with it. This area, that usually houses large bags full of unwrapped toys that will be wrapped before being sent to the needy children we serve, has been stripped bare thanks to the generosity of United Stationers of Carol Stream, who have donated their time and wrapping paper to wrap gifts for 35 needy children in our project!
United Stationers was initially penciled in to
wrap gifts for 25 children, but when Dora McLin, the Local Transportation
Manager at United Stationers who has graciously spearheaded their wrapping
campaign, called in yesterday she thought, “what’s another ten bags?” Well let
us tell you, with each bag containing 4-8 large gifts, 5-7 books, and numerous
other smaller gifts, 10 bags is no short order, not to mention the 35 total
that United Stationers has taken to wrap.
