Volunteers needed for Blue Santa wrap nights
Posted on 12/12/2017 5:49:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- Blue Santa's workshop will host its final wrap night this week. Seguin Police DARE Officer Hope Vasquez says sign-up is required to attend a scheduled wrap night. She says those wishing to attend tonight still have a chance to email her their information.
"Wrapping nights will be people that have called in, emailed or texted me their names that they want to be in the wrapping nights...which is the the 12th and the 14th. The 12th is already full. They send me the name, address and phone numbers so we can put them on the list. I do need to have a head count, because we're in a different area this year so the space is a little bit smaller and we can only squeeze about maybe four to five people in a table," said Vasquez.
Volunteers who don't wish to wrap gifts but who still want to lend a hand are also encouraged to sign-up. Officer Vasquez says there's always a job at Blue Santa's workshop.
"What I need is someone for besides wrapping. A lot of men get scared with wrapping, but they can help check in the gifts. We can have somebody checking people in. We can have somebody in the wrapping supply area. We need somebody to start the coffee and the hot chocolate area. I think it's going to be very cold. Those people, I need them very early before five so that way they can get everything started and if they have any questions, they can ask me and get their areas ready," said Vasquez.
Wrap nights will be held today and on Thursday, Dec. 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The workshop this year is located in the Saegert campus cafeteria located at 118 N. Bowie St. Those wishing to participate are asked to email Officer Vasquez at dare@seguintexas.gov.
