Community groups can raise funds for their worthy causes while spreading some holiday cheer as BXs and PXs across the globe are actively soliciting partners for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service's annual community gift wrap program.

"Our research confirms what we've long suspected; exchange shoppers are time stressed," said Selfridge General Manager Gina Meeks. "In order to make the holidays a little easier, we partner with local groups to ensure gifts purchased at the exchange are wrapped up before they even leave the store. Beyond offering a one-stop solution for busy military shoppers, this effort also helps raise dollars for local military support initiatives."

During peak holiday seasons, BXs and PXs set up tables and provide supplies that community volunteer groups can use to wrap gifts in exchange for donations. Dates and hours of operation for gift wrapping services vary from location to location, but interested organizations can contact their local BX for information on scheduling a time to participate. 

Please contact the Gina Meeks, General Manager, at 586-239-4614 if you are interested in offering gift wrap services to our very important customers.
