Wrapping up Christmas wishes for those in need

News

Volunteers came out to Bulls and Bears in Hagerstown Thursday night to wrap presents for in need children.

RBC and Bester Community of Hope teamed up to fulfill the Christmas wishes of 40 children in the Hagerstown area.

Children provided wish lists for Christmas, and Good Samaritans went out to purchase those gifts.

Tonight, they all came together to wrap the presents, so they will be ready for the kids come Christmas morning.

“It’s not so much about the merchandise. It’s not about the transaction of receiving a gift,” remarked Keith Fanjoy, Director, Bester Community of Hope. “It’s really about the message that is being sent by somebody that’s taken the time to do something nice for someone else, a family that might be in a difficult time receives a gift, and they have hope that they didn’t have before.”

RBC also presented a check of $1,000 at the event to Bester Community of Hope.
