open hands alliance gift drive

Get Involved

Last year, Open Hands Alliance provided over 800 beautifully wrapped presents for families residing at Partners In Housing and teens at Urban Peak Colorado Springs. This year we hope to increase our impact with enough toys, clothes, gift cards and wrapping supplies to make us consider a 3rd recipient next year.

Our 2018 gift wrapping night

The Gift Wrapping Night:
Sat. Dec. 8th,  4-8pm
Werner Restoration
80 Talamine Ct. Colorado Springs, CO 80907

Here we will inventory, wrap and package everything for delivery within the next couple days. We will have complementary snacks and appetizers, beverages (beer and wine included), and supplies to wrap gifts. Bring your best wrapping skills and lets have a great night!
