The residents with the gifts they wrapped so beautifully.
Maxine and Fran wrapping presents as a team.
This month the residents at Primrose in Mankato, MN had the opportunity to work together with Partners for Affordable Housing to wrap gifts for families! Partners for Affordable Housing operates two homeless shelters in the Mankato area along with numerous other volunteer hours. The Partners for Affordable Housing, with the help of all of their volunteers, are able to obtain and wrap enough gifts for over 100 families! The residents at Primrose were able to wrap gifts that would go to families in the shelters and the transitional housing program. Everyone here at Primrose enjoyed this event because it was an opportunity to give back to the community that they love. The residents gave about an hour of their time to wrapping the gifts and then they enjoyed a giant cookie afterwards while chatting! We were able to wrap over 15 giant gifts while working with a partner since the boxes were so large. It definitely looked like Santa’s workshop with all of the wrapping paper, tape, scissors, and gifts all around the Community Room!
