After last weekend’s successful Washington Nationals’ “Winterfest” toy drive at Nationals Park, in which The Washington Informer Charities participated, staff and friends of The Washington Informer will likewise join forces with Events DC to help with other giveaway events.

Two gift-wrapping events will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 17 and Tuesday, Dec. 18 at the R.I.S.E. Center, located at 2730 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE. A toy giveaway will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Volunteers are needed to help show off their gift-wrapping skills, and those interested can contact The Informer’s Angie Johnson at 202-561-4100.
