First Steps Housing Wrapping Gifts For Donations

A local business and non-profit teaming up so you can do good while doing your last-minute Christmas shopping. 

Staff and volunteers from First Steps Housing are at Handworks Gallery wrapping gifts for donations that will go towards buying boots, coats and more for young mothers and their children. Executive Director Sharon Amirault tells CHSJ News the holiday season can be one of the most difficult times of the year for those who use their facility and this initiative will make things easier for them.

Amirault says they have raised almost $700 so far. They will be at the store located at 12 King Street today and tomorrow wrapping gifts.
