It's a wrap! Literally, revisit te 4th Annual Holiday Book wrap to benefit Hopeline.
On December 7th, NJ Corporate Counsel Association held its Fourth Annual Holiday Book Wrappng Party. The gift wrapped books are donated to the children living in a number of Hopeline domestic violence shelters throughout New Jersey. A group of about 60 volunteers gathered to wrap 360 children's books.
This networking and holiday outreach event was graciously sponsored by NJCCA, Thompson Hine, Update Legal, Haley Stuart, Verizon, BASF and generous donations by our members.
The pictures that follow try to capture the work that was done to make each of the gifts look very special for the children receiving them.
