Gift-wrapping for a good cause

Written by 

Those looking for a good place to do holiday shopping — plus have the gifts wrapped — will be happy that Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation is doing its annual gift-wrapping project for shoppers at Mast General Store on Main Street in Waynesville.

Sarge’s will be wrapping holiday gifts during regular store hours Dec. 2-24. Organizers are in need of donated wrapping materials and volunteers to work three-hour shifts at Mast.

“Help save an innocent pet’s life,” said Tish O’Connor, co-coordinator of the gift-wrapping project. “One hundred percent of the donations go towards taking care of the homeless dogs and cats in Sarge’s care.”

Mast General Store shoppers can bring their purchases to the gift-wrapping table in the store lobby and volunteers will box and wrap the holiday gifts for a donation to Sarge’s.

To sign up, visit: The volunteers are in need of donations of white tissue paper, bows and dispenser Scotch tape rolls.

To help with this project, drop off wrapping materials donations to Sarge’s Adoption Center (256 Industrial Park Drive, Waynesville) from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday or from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, or at Mast General Store after Dec. 2.

Sarge’s mission is to save healthy homeless dogs and cats in Haywood County. Since Sarge’s beginning in 2006, the group has saved more than 8,000 animals. Visit
