From November 24th to December 24th, 2016 Community Living Essex County benefited from over one hundred dedicated volunteers who operated the annual Gift Wrapping Booth fundraiser at Devonshire Mall in Windsor.
For the past 24 years the gift wrap booth annually raises a significant amount of money in support of people with intellectual disabilities and their families. These funds assist us to respond to people who live in Essex County and help address a variety of needs. The gift wrap booth also provides a unique opportunity to acquaint thousands of holiday shoppers with an understanding of the goals and work of Community Living Essex County.
With the help of a variety of local service clubs, church groups, students, businesses as well as families, staff and those supported by Community Living Essex County, the 2016 Gift Wrapping Booth raised an incredible $18,000.
“We are extremely appreciative and thankful for the support we receive each year from Devonshire Mall-Windsor, all of our volunteers and the public for keeping the holiday spirit alive” states Tony DeSantis, Manager of Community Relations and Resource Development with Community Living Essex County.
