Local Nonprofit Wraps Gifts For Mentor Program
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- The nonprofit organization, Mesa County Partners, are wrapping gifts in the Mesa Mall to raise money for their mentoring program.
Members say the money will go toward their 101 mentoring program, which helps kids who need some extra leaders in their life.
"This year we wrapped a giant bow and arrow for someone. We didn't have a box to fit it in, so we had to take two boxes apart and then put them together long ways. Then we just wrapped that, and made a giant bow. It was really cool," said Eddick Tuttle, crew leader with Partners.
They say they'll wrap up just about anything.
Partners will be in the mall wrapping gifts until Dec. 24.
They recommend giving a $3 donation.
The organization has been holding this fundraiser for 15 years and officials say they make a good amount of money every year.
