Gift Wrapping is this evening

word of month character

Today we are making last minute preparations for the gift wrapping of gifts for the foster children of Anne Arundel County this evening. Ms. Adrian has separated the gift cards into categories, gotten the list of children put into order, and is ready to put that part of the program together. The students of Indian Creek School are ready to come and gift wrap the toys and clothes for the younger children.

To make it a bit more festive, we have cookies and hot chocolate for all the families wrapping this evening. It is going to be a wonderful evening and we have a lot of families and individuals to thank for the time, effort and money contributed to making the holiday the best it can be for the foster children of Anne Arundel County.

Gift Wrap Project

Last night we took a group of students and parents to the Sheraton Hotel to do gift wrapping with the Jr. League.  For the second year in a row now we have wrapped gifts for the 234 foster children in our county so that they will have a holiday season that will bring some joy to their lives.
With 3 to 4 gifts contributed for each child by the citizens of AA County, it is quite a chore.  But with all that we have learned on the mat in our martial arts training about focus and discipline we were able to complete all the wrapping in just one hour.  Here are some photos from our evening.
