On Saturday, December 15, Redstone volunteers returned to the Children’s Inn Gift Wrap Booth at the Empire Mall, wrapping approximately 40 gifts. This was the second year that Redstone participated in this worthy cause.
At the Gift Wrap Booth, mall-goers who have their gifts wrapped are encouraged to provide cash donations for the service. All proceeds benefit the Children’s Inn of Sioux Falls, which provides free services to victims of domestic violence and child abuse & neglect.
Amy Carlisle, a Redstone employee, participated in the event for a second year in a row. She greatly enjoyed the experience once again. “Wrapping gifts and visiting with the patrons was so fun. Honestly, it didn’t feel like working at all and the time just flew by. I’m so happy I donated a couple hours of my time to such a worthy cause.”
The Gift Wrap Booth is an annual, month-long event at the Empire Mall each December. Redstone plans to participate again in 2019.
