Local Charity Holds Annual Gift Wrapping Fundraiser
The annual "Gift Wrapping for a Cause" drive is back from the Arc of East Central Iowa.
For a small donation of $2-$6 per gift, depending on its size, to their organization, you can have your gifts wrapped for you at Lindale Mall. According to KCRG, all the proceeds go towards Arc of East Central Iowa expanding their services for people with intellectual and physical disabilities in Cedar Rapids and other communities.
The gifts you bring in to have wrapped can be purchased from anywhere, not just Lindale Mall.
According to the Arc's website, their mission is to
improve the quality of life for individuals and families affected by epilepsy, autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, ADHD, and brain injury. We believe in building better lives for people with disabilities and their families
This is the drive's 14th year at Lindale, where the hours are Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Sunday 11-5, and Christmas Eve 9-3.
