2nd Chance Charitable Gift Wrapping Stations at Quintard Mall in Oxford
If you have yet to wrap your Christmas gifts or give back this holiday season, here’s your “second chance” to do both. Second Chance is a nonprofit organization that provides emergency shelter and other supportive services to people who are victims of sexual and domestic abuse.
For more than 20 years, Second Chance sets up booths inside the Quintard Mall so volunteers can wrap gifts in exchange for a donation towards their program. Shoppers just pick out their gifts and wrapping paper and Second Chance does the rest. Executive Director Susan Shipman says gifts that need to be wrapped do not have to be purchased inside the mall. Shipman says domestic and sexual violence happens more often than people realize.
There are two gift wrapping stations located inside the mall. One is in front of the Goody’s Department store and another is located near Dillard’s. The stations will be operating on mall hours up until Christmas Eve.
