Gift Wrapping for Charity

If you'd rather leave the Christmas gift-wrapping to the experts, we have just the place, and a way to help charity. Today, the Greenbriar Children's Center held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open their holiday gift-wrapping center in Savannah Mall. Shoppers can drop off their presents to be wrapped during the holiday season.

While they were there, Valero LP presented a $10,000 check to the center. They raised the money during a golf tournament.

Greenbriar officials say the children will benefit the most from the check and the gift-wrap center. "Proceeds will go to help them in terms of social services, recreational services, making sure they have complete child experience while they are at Greenbriar," said the children's center's Gena Taylor.

Greenbriar helps children who have been abandoned by their families and have nowhere else to go.
