Since 2010, shoppers have raised more than $189,000 for St.Amant Foundation by visiting the gift wrap and coat check station. And year after year, dozens of volunteers eagerly sign up to fill every three-hour time slot throughout December. The Gift Wrap & Coat Check, sponsored by St. Vital Centre and Desjardins Financial Security Investments – St. Vital, operates December 1-24.
It’s easy to find near the London Drugs entrance and across from customer service and will be open during regular shopping centre hours. You also can’t miss the bright St.Amant signage. The St.Amant Foundation thanks St.Vital Centre for providing the large and welcoming space. The gift wrap and coat check station will be connected to the internet, allowing donations via credit card.
With so many reasons to visit before the mall closes on Christmas Eve, we hope St.Amant staff will encourage family and friends to come by and create their own holiday giving tradition.
