TIS the season to give, and volunteers from local charities are offering gift wrapping services for a gold coin donation at Mandurah Forum.

Shoppers who donate a gold coin to have their gifts wrapped will support Foodbank Peel, Helping Minds, K9 Dog Refuge and Compassionate Friends who are working hard help those who need it most during the festive season.

Mandurah Forum Centre Manager Jacqueline McKenzie said all proceeds from the gift wrapping service would go directly to the charities involved.

“Our charity wrapping station is in action right up until we close on Christmas Eve, so it’s the perfect opportunity to add that special touch to your presents – while saving time and supporting a great cause at the same time,” Ms McKenzie said.

Peel Food Bank, also collecting food donations in the centre, said they are thrilled to be involved in the gift wrapping service this year.

“The donations will help us purchase additional food to stock our shelves during one of the busiest times of the year,” said Foodbank Peel Branch Manager Megan Reynolds.

“Every dollar donated provides two meals, so it really does make a difference, so we are hoping that the spirit of giving shines through.”

The gift wrapping service is located near Boost Juice and Woolworths, and operates from 10am to 4pm every day except Thursdays when services are open until 7pm.
