SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Community groups can raise funds for their worthy causes while spreading some holiday cheer.

The Schofield and Hickam Exchanges are actively soliciting partners for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s annual community gift wrap program.

“In order to make the holidays a little easier, we partner with local military groups to ensure gifts purchased at the Exchange can be wrapped up before they even leave the store,” said Patrick Riordan, area manager. “This initiative offers a one-stop solution for busy military shoppers.”

During peak holiday seasons, the Exchange sets up tables and provides wrapping paper and ribbon that community volunteer groups can use to wrap gifts for donations.

Points of Contact
Dates and hours for gift wrapping services may vary, but interested organizations can contact the Schofield Exchange at 622-1773 or the Hickam Exchange at 422-5395.
