You’re having a what?
You’re having a what?…
So you are probably asking yourself “what in the world is a trash bag party?”
Here’s how it works:
Each family that signs up for the program are given an identifying number and each child within that family is given a letter. Each child usually receives 2-3 gifts. As the gifts are sorted, they are placed in drawstring trash bags that have a label with the recipients’ number/letter printed on it. And that’s where you come in.
Of course buying the trash bags is the easy part. Each bag has to be removed from the box and have a label applied to it. The bags are bundled in groups of 100, tied together and piled. At the end of the night the bags will be picked up by the Christmas Giving Program.
Last year we were asked to provide more than 3000 trash bags for labeling. Please consider stopping by for an hour or two to help out. It’s not difficult, the space will be full of interesting people to talk with, and we try to keep things lively to make the time fly by.
