Wrap It Up Information For Volunteers

Wrap It Up Information for Volunteers

The Wrap it Up fundraiser is an annual event put on by the Nurture Yourself Program. Volunteers come out to one of our 'Wrap it Up' store locations and wrap gifts for mall customers who make a donation to the Nurture Yourself Program. This opportunity is great for individuals, families and groups. Please note:

  • All registrations must be done online (if you are part of a volunteer group, you must register every volunteer separately, and each volunteer registration must have a different email address or your registration will fail)
  • You may choose to volunteer for one or more shifts, it is up to you. But you must register for each shift individually
  • We ask that if you are under the age of 16 you come with a parent or guardian
  • Families-although this is a great opportunity for the entire family we ask that only children age 10 years and up accompany you. This is for the safety of younger children
  • Groups- please note that the maximum number of wrappers allowed per shift is up to 12 people (and may be less in shifts that are during slower times)
  • All the supplies you need to wrap gifts are at the store
  • No prior experience is needed, but we do not provide training. If you are not familiar with wrapping gifts we suggest to team up with another volunteer who is and assist them. It can be lots of fun to work together!
  • Please bring your own snacks and water
  • Need a certificate of your hours or a letter? No problem! We can supply you with those at the end of the fundraiser (after December 24th)

Want to do more than just wrap gifts? Each volunteer shift requires 1-2 front desk volunteers to run the front desk. Operating the front desk entails:

  • Helping the customers, taking their payment and giving change (if needed)
  • Recording customers and the gifts they dropped off
  • Tagging gifts to keep them organized
  • Opening or closing the store doors (only during morning or evening shifts) If this opportunity interests you please fill out the following form to apply for this position. View the Application Form Here
