XMAS Gift Wrap
In December, AYM hosted a gift wrapping station at Bay Street Emeryville to assist local shoppers and collect donations for CityTeam Oakland’s holiday toy drive.
Students got trained up in how to be expert gift wrappers and engage in conversations on the true meaning of Christmas. AYM Mentor Clarissa set-up an awesome training time complete with demos and hands-on practice.
We had a nice spot at the outdoor mall and set up a Christmas tree and a basket of ornaments right next to the gift wrap area for shoppers to write down/share their favorite Christmas memories as they waited for their gifts to be wrapped.
It was a sweet time of working hard and connecting with the community!
