"Giant Giftbagging" Event: This event takes place on, Sunday, December 3, 2017 starting at 9 am (the Sunday following the night of our shopping event). You are welcome to come show your support for Christmas for Kids of Douglas County by participating in our bagging event! All of the presents shopped for from the previous Friday night are bagged in a 3 step process (with the help of many great community volunteers, like you!). In the past, we have always wrapped each child's individual gifts; however, we are trying a new process of giftbagging their gifts instead as we want to be sure we have the time to reach the maximum volume of underprivileged children. We hope to make this transition smooth for all our volunteers! This event is located on the second floor at Redeemer's Fellowship Downtown Offices (a.k.a. the old Newberry's store) located at 729 SE Jackson St, Roseburg, OR. For this event, use the back door entrance off of Main St. Through generous donations, beverages and food will be provided. We will also provide all of the giant giftbagging, black bags (for the very inside so no child can peek early at their presents!), scissors, ribbon, non-stick name tags, and pens, but feel free (and we encourage you) to bring your own (as the amounts of these things slim down toward the end of the event day). The true gift of giving continues with this event, it is definitely one you do not want to miss! Hope to see you there!
