Wrapping for a cause

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

For many not-for-profits the holidays can be a good time to raise money.

The Arc of East Central Iowa is one of several groups that have volunteers wrapping presents for a small fee. The Arc serves kids with mental and physical disabilities.

Their booth is in the food court at Lindale Mall. Volunteers have been wrapping presents at the mall for many years.

 "I love volunteering," said Brenda Carter.  "It makes a person feel really good to volunteer and it goes to a good cause."

The Arc will wrap presents at Lindale Mall Sunday and Christmas Eve. Volunteers say they usually make $800 on Christmas Eve alone.
