Hours of operation will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Nov. 29 through Dec. 1.  From Dec. 2 through Dec. 8 it will operate between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., and then from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Dec. 9 through Dec. 24.

The Project Graduation team has made a goal to be available for wrapping at the convenience of all shoppers’ schedules and items do not have to be purchased at the Livingston Mall.

A variety of gift bags, boxes, wrapping paper and ribbons will be available this year at the gift wrap booth and cost will range from $1 to $8 depending on size and intricacy of wrapping.

Volunteers including students, alumni, teachers, and parents generously donate their time each year and spend approximately 650 volunteer hours to wrap close to 1,000 gifts.

Money raised goes to support the Livingston High School Project Graduation which is a volunteer run, annual tradition of LHS.

The program offers an organized, adult-supervised, tobacco-free, drug-free, and alcohol-free celebration of graduation at no cost to the student. For more information on the gift wrap booth (to inquire about the service or to volunteer), contact the Project Graduation committee at lhsgiftwrap@gmail.com.
