It’s hard being popular, but that is exactly what the Red Cross YES team was for two weeks at the Serramonte shopping center. Dozens of bright-eyed teens wrapped presents for hundreds of shoppers with nary a complaint from either side.
The lightning fast wrappers handled anything and everything with aplomb – the size or shape of the gift was no problem, it was wrapped regardless. The mass amount of shoppers seeking wrapping became overwhelming at times, but even when short-handed, the intrepid wrappers never lost their holiday cheer. All in all, the wrapping was a great success!
