Volunteers Wrap Packages for a Cause

Posted: Updated:

It's the busiest gift wrapping day of the year. Volunteers tied bows and curled ribbon to raise money for a good cause.

It's the definition of holiday spirit, the gift of giving. And volunteers put holiday festivities on hold to raise money for the Central Dakota Humane Society. They wrapped presents for shoppers at the Bismarck Barnes and Noble location. The donations they received will help cover operation costs at the animal shelter.

"There's a lot of different reasons why people need money. And this is just a cool way to connect a consumer need with some extra cash for their organization," says store manager Lisa Rask.

The store also held a book drive earlier this year. They delivered about 2,000 books to children in need this holiday season.
