Volunteers wrap Christmas gifts for free at Charleston Town Center
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) —
The Pilot Club has been wrapping gifts for shoppers at the Charleston Town Center for 15 years.
Members of the organization donate their time, while the mall donates all the supplies to offer the free service to its customers. Shoppers gladly take advantage of their expertise.
“It’s a wonderful bit of a fundraiser for us, but we also just love the fact that we’re out here among people, and seeing all their gifts, and wishing them a Merry Christmas,” Suzette Lowe, pilot club president of Jackson County, said. “It’s just a great lot of fun.”
The gift wrapping booth is located near AT&T on the second floor. All guests need to bring is their item and receipt from a Town Center store.
While the service is free, wrappers do accept tips and use the earnings to work with individuals with brain disorders, Alzheimer’s and autism.
