Bergen Volunteers’ All Wrapped Up program is spreading holiday cheer to more than 2,000 people with donations of supermarket gift cards, clothing, toys, and coats from about 500 donors. All Wrapped Up, a service program of Bergen Volunteers, matches individuals and families in need with donors from the community. For the last 24 years, Bergen Volunteers has helped more than 88,000 individuals and families receive holiday gifts.

Volunteer Barbara Blumberg said, “These are gifts filled with love and concern for those around me.” She created 130 magical gift bags filled with stuffed animals, toys, crayons, and coloring books for children in the program. “I truly get so much out of crafting these special bags to brighten up a child’s day,” she said.
