2012 was the first year we did a Friends With Hearts wrapping party. The idea started from emails I received from a few individuals asking if there was another way they could help out because they couldn’t afford a donation at the time. I definitely did not want Friends With Hearts to revolve completely around money so I came up with the idea of a wrapping party. A time where anyone could come and help out. A time to listen to Christmas music, eat cookies, wrap the gifts we purchased for the families, but most of all, we did it together. With the success of the party last year, it has officially turned into a huge part of the Friends With Hearts model and will continue to be an annual event.

I invite you to come join us and help wrap the gifts for the families that we’ve sponsored this year. If you have any questions at all, please email me and I will be happy to answer them.
All I ask is that you please RSVP if you wish to attend so we can get an idea of our numbers 🙂
