Gift wrapping at Berkshire Mall benefits Safe Berks

Safe Berks volunteers are waiting to wrap your holiday gifts at the Berkshire Mall. The hassle free wrapping experience raises funds for Safe Berks, a local nonprofit which provides free services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

The effort started on December 1 and will continue through December 24. The Safe Berks Gift Wrapping table is located near center court, next to the escalator, and across from Kay Jewelers.

“We are so grateful to all our dedicated volunteers who have donated their valuable time to wrap gifts to help Safe Berks,” said Beth Garrigan, Safe Berks CEO.

“Our Gift Wrapping Table is an important fundraiser and we hope you will visit with your gifts. All donations help us continue to provide free services to local survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. While most of us enjoy the safety and happiness of our homes during the holidays, unfortunately, home is not a safe place for everyone. For victims of domestic violence, home can be the most dangerous place of all.”
