Hope, a member of Children’s Hunger Fund, had planned on celebrating her 16th birthday at America’s Toy Wrap. She planned to invite 60 of her friends and family to join and start a wrap-a-thon to wrap toys for children in need. Unfortunately, she couldn’t get her group into America Toy Wrap. She proved to be very resourceful since she decided to host a wrap-a-thon in her own home. Her family purchased 1,000 gifts for wrapping and started working! From 8 am to midnight the Saturday after Thanksgiving, they welcomed people into their home in two-hour shifts to wrap toys and enjoy delicious food together.
