Scarves for January's scarf-bombing by WUP.

February Scarf-Bombing

February may be warm, but the weather can change.  It’s still winter, after all!  That’s why the Wrap Up! Project is having their February scarf-bombing on February 28, 2017 Reservoir Park in Lancaster, PA, and the it’s off to Columbia Presbyterian.  Meet at the park at 7pm. See the Facebook event to sign up and to get more information.

In the meantime, keep up the awesome work with creating scarf for WUP.  We have received so many donations in the past month!  YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

February Tagging Party

Yeesh.  It feel like spring outside.  Is that going to hamper the Wrap Up! Project’s efforts?  NOPE!  It’s still cold in the evenings, and the weather could change on a dime.  With that in mind, we’re gearing up for our next scarf-bombing by having our February Tagging Party on February 27, 2017 from 7pm-9pm at Kegel’s Produce.  Bring a snack to share!

As usual, we will be tagging items for the next scarf-bombing, and many hands make light work.  It’s a great social event, too!  We’d love to see you there.

Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook event page.  We hop to see you there!

January Events

I’m sure we can all agree that the weather has been relatively unpleasant lately, with it being all cold, and sometimes rainy.  That’s make what we do here at The Wrap Up! Project all the more important!  Speaking of getting ready, here are a few January events that that we need your help with.

Tagging Party

The next tagging party will take place at Kegel’s Produce on January 26, 2017 from 6:30pm-9pm.  The more hands we have there to help tag, the quicker it gets done.  Bring along your current project and we’ll socialize, too!  Sign up here on the Facebook page for this event.

Scarf-Bombing

The next scarf-bombing will take place January 31, 2017 around the Lancaster YWCA.  A need for warm items has been expressed for that area, so we’re going to step up to the challenge and meet there.  After we are done in Lancaster, it’s off to scarf-bomb the Columbia Presbyterian Church, as is usually the case.  Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook page for this particular event.

That’s what’s happening with WUP in the next few weeks.  We hope to see you at one or both January events!  The more help we have, the quicker it goes, and we have a good time doing what we do, too.
