I volunteered at an event called Brown Santa, where I basically just wrapped gifts for families and their children for Christmas. I was given a certain family to help wrap gifts for, and I was also given toys or books/puzzles to wrap for the small children within the family. This service was basically for families who weren't financially capable of getting their children gifts. The toys and gifts that we wrapped were all donated to this organization, and I was fortunate enough to be apart of it for one hour. I really enjoy wrapping gifts in general, and getting to do it for another family made me appreciate what I had. I would definitely participate in helping out with this organization in the future.
First of all, I love to wrap gifts. When I knew I was wrapping gifts for families who otherwise wouldn't have gifts for Christmas, it was even more special and fun. I even put on Christmas music for all the volunteers who were there wrapping gifts to get us in the Christmas spirit.
