Applications for 2016 will open in October/2016

We'd like to say a big thank you to all our 2015 volunteers for making this year's gift wrapping one of the best years ever. We simply couldn't have done it without your support and the support of Vicinity Centres.

Multiple Sclerosis Limited and Vicinity Centres are once again working in partnership to offer gift wrapping to shoppers visiting nominated shopping complexes across New South Wales and Victoria.
As one of the team of over 500 volunteer gift wrappers you will be supporting people affected by multiple sclerosis as you enjoy meeting people and gift wrapping with fellow volunteers. You have the chance to use your creative skills to wrap presents and (even for those whose gift wrapping skills are still improving,) you also have the chance to spread some holiday cheer.

You don't need experience to be an MS Gift Wrapper. You will be provided with clear instructions about where to go and how to get there, as well as some tricks and tips about how you can wrap. Vicinity Centres will provide the wrapping paper, ribbon and other supplies needed.

Shifts are at various locations across New South Wales and Victoria and range from 2 - 5 hours long. Shifts vary in size between 3 - 8 people so many volunteers find gift wrapping a great opportunity to volunteer with friends. It is a very popular event for businesses that run volunteering programs as they can also volunteer as a group.

Don't forget to share this page and the opportunity with your friends and family so they can join you wrapping or bring their present purchased a Vicinity Centre for wrapping. Click on the 'Register Now' button to get in as early and possible and have the best chance at being allocated to your preferred shifts.
