A local business encourages the community to get holiday gifts wrapped and save a life while doing so
The Green Door Wrapping will be wrapping Christmas gifts this season as a fundraising effort for the Shriner's Children Hospital.
The gift wrapping is free, but donations are welcomed.
The shop is located in Kirksvilleâ??s downtown square and they will be wrapping gifts during normal business hours. The owner will deliver the donations to Shriner's during the second week of January.
â??You just bring them in, as long as you make sure you know how many gifts you've got and each one's got a name on it so we're not packaging them up then you're going, I don't know which one's which ... so that we can put a tag on it for you so you'll know who it belongs to. Thatâ??s all it requires,â?? says shop owner Rosalie Caldwell.
In previous years, Green Door has collected about $300 in donations.
