Holiday Gift Wrapping for Donation

What better way to get those gifts wrapped than to have someone else do it and support local families in need?  A group of Stowe High School students will be wrapping gifts at the Stowe Community Church on Friday, December 21st from 9:30-11:30 for donations to our Families in Need Fund.  This fund helps families in need with accessing things like heating oil, camps, and other supports.  Please bring all your gifts and let us help you get your wrapping done.

Also, we are looking for donations of wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper and tape if you would like to help us out.  You can drop any donations off to the the high school by this Thursday.  Thank you.
