GREAT FALLS — The Great Falls Children's Receiving Home is conducting its annual gift-wrapping fundraiser.

For more than 15 years now, the organization has hosted a gift-wrapping event to raise money for the youth they support, wrapping gifts at low cost.

Costs range from $3-$10, depending on the size of the gift: Small, $3; Medium, $5; Large, $7; Extra Large, $10

This year, the event is being held at Kaufman's Menswear at 411 Central Avenue.

  • December 10 through December 23: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • December 24: 10 a.m. through 4 p.m.

Children's Receiving Home board member Shawna Severson has volunteered to help wrap for the past several years and believes doing so makes a difference. “It's really important to have this home in this community. This is a way for you to give back to the community, while getting your presents wrapped, which is tough around the holidays to get in sometimes,” Severson said.
