COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – We have a solution to all of your gift wrapping needs this holiday season.

The Columbus Lowndes Humane Society’s annual gift wrapping fundraiser is in full swing.

Volunteers will wrap all of your gifts, for a small donation.

Even Heritage Academy Seniors are getting involved, offering a helping hand for their senior projects.

Columbus Lowndes Humane Society representative Karen Johnwick says this last minute push to raise money is key to finishing the first phase of construction on their new shelter.

“You know we’re so close to this new building. We can see it, we can taste it almost, and we are just so desperately trying to raise funds to complete the first phase. So, I encourage everyone to continue to think about us. Last minute shoppers,we’ll save you the hastle, the time. Just bring them to us, and we’ll help you, ” says Johnwick.

You can find their booth at the entrance of Books-A- Million at Leigh Mall in Columbus.

They will wrap up on Christmas Eve.
