“We thought the staff was kidding when they said we didn’t need any money. We thought our hearing aids weren’t turned up loud enough when they said we could get a gift for each of our children and grandchildren. The feeling of being able to give a gift to our families was overwhelming….They made us feel good; they made us feel human. Wrapping Presence truly made it feel like Christmas!”

(Anna, Doris, Mary, Myrtle, and William – Homebound Residents)


“Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your inspired adventures. It is just as much of a gift to me and the other volunteers as it is to the nursing home residents and we are grateful.”

(Kara – Wrapping Buddy)

“I am the daughter of a resident who lives at Homestead Nursing Home. I wanted to thank
you so much for the wonderful Christmas gifts. My father was so anxious to give them to us…Thank you so much for giving joy to those who are not capable of shopping for their families. I would like to extend myself and offer to wrap gifts next year.”

(Elizabeth – Family Member)

“The extra touches like homemade cookies and handmade door decorations for the shoppers brought priceless looks of delight and satisfaction to their faces. Our residents were so appreciative of this service and it was presented in such a way that it was not perceived as ‘charity.’ “

(Linda – Director of Procurement)


“The team of Wrapping Buddies added so much to the resident’s shopping experience … cheerful smiles, hugs, beautiful music, and conversation made this an unforgettable afternoon.”
