Helping residence-bound senior citizens to give with joy and dignity at holiday time

Founded in 1995

in memory of her parents, Marne Dietterich developed a special program to bring the hubbub of the holidays back into the lives of homebound residents. Wrapping Presence® arrives with a flourish in early December to set up “shops” brimming with new gifts for all ages. “Wrapping Buddy” volunteers pass homemade cookies, help residents select presents for their loved ones, wrap and tag the gifts and celebrate the joy of giving with the residents. There is no cost to the residents or to the facility. All gifts and services for Wrapping Presence® are donated. Wrapping Presence is an outreach of Doylestown Presbyterian Church that welcomes volunteers and resident shoppers from all faiths.
