CONTACT Community Services will host its annual Gift Wrapping Fundraiser at the Tanger Outlet Mall, Cookstown from November 29th until December 24th.

On Black Friday, the mayors of South Simcoe were on hand to wrap presents in a show of support for the charity. 

Floyd Pinto from Adjala–Tosorontio, Rick Milne from New Tecumseth, Rob Keffer from Bradfrod West–Gwillimbury and Lynn Dollin from Innisfil all shared their gift-wrapping abilities alongside CONTACT staff and volunteers, last Friday, November 29.

Proceeds from the wrapping event will support CONTACT Community Services – serving the communities of South Simcoe for the past 40 years. 

CONTACT operates a Housing Resource Center and Volunteer and Information Services for all of South Simcoe, Bradford WORKS (Employment Services), and The Clothes Line in Alliston. 

CONTACT also operates health and wellness programs for low income seniors in Alliston, Beeton and Bradford and free income tax clinics for individuals on low income from all South Simcoe communities. 

“Tanger shoppers can get their presents wrapped before they head home and keep family from spotting what they have purchased,” said Sharon Palmer CONTACT representative. “Suggested donations are five dollars for one gift, fifteen dollars for four gifts, or six gifts for twenty dollars – with boxes, paper, ribbon and tags provided. Visit CONTACT’s Gift Wrap booth located between Entrance Two and Six beside Coach at the Tanger Mall this holiday season and help CONTACT give everyone a home, employment and a future!”
