LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The American Red Cross Berkshire County chapter is hosting a gift-wrapping booth at the Berkshire Mall. Shoppers can bring their gifts to be wrapped daily from Dec. 8 through Dec. 24.
"We look forward to the wrapping booth every year," said Kate Leene, Berkshire County director. "The money we raise during the holidays by gift wrapping at the Berkshire Mall helps us to support our communities here in the Berkshires year round."
The funds raised from gift wrapping are used to support the chapter's programs — assisting families affected by disaster, helping military families relay emergency communications to their deployed loved ones and providing lifesaving training programs.
