ALDA Participating in Gift Wrapping Event to Raise Funds

22 Nov 2017 3:51 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

ALDA Chicago is participating in the Holiday Gift Wrapping program at Barnes & Noble in Oakbrook this year as a means to raise some additional funds.  The program starts with Black Friday/Thanksgiving weekend and continues through Christmas Eve, December 24th.  There will be a tip jar and all proceeds from the tip jar go to ALDA Chicago.  Volunteers can sign up for as many hours as they want, from 2 hours and up.  We hope to fill each 2-hour time slot of a shift with a minimum of 2 individuals so that at least one person is at the gift wrapping table at all times.

So far, and with many thanks to everyone who volunteered, we have successfully filled most shifts on three separate dates as outlined below.  Some time slots could still use additional help as well as potential alternates.  If you have questions or concerns or are interested in volunteering, please email Marsha Kopp at

If you are unable to volunteer, we hope you will at least take some time to visit our wrapping station on these scheduled dates.

10 am to 3 pm:   Kim Mettache, Debra Flowers, Tracy Lee

  1 pm to 3 pm:   Dawn and Joe Linder

Volunteers for Tuesday, December 12th, 4 pm to 10 pm
