It is with deep sadness that we announce the cancellation of The House of Ruth Wrapping Station at Eagle Eye Outfitters. We know that this will come as a disappointment to those looking forward to supporting this local non-profit or those who despise wrapping presents, but we still want to encourage you to support local non-profits, like The House of Ruth Dothan, that need assistance during the holidays.
Amidst the widespread disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, nonprofit organizations must make difficult decisions on whether to cancel meetings, conferences, expos and events. This is not a decision their Board of Directors has taken lightly and after careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) the House of Ruth – Dothan (“THOR”) Board of Directors decided not to conduct their Annual Gift Wrapping fundraiser this month (Dec 8-23, 2020). The THOR Board of Directors arrived at this difficult decision after weighing the health risks, scheduling and volunteer turnout.
Thank you for your understanding.
If messing with the tape, scissors, and wrapping paper fills you with anxiety, The House of Ruth may have perfect solution! The House of Ruth is partnering with Eagle Eye Outfitters for their annual Christmas Wrapping Station.
This annual wrapping event is one of two major fundraisers for the local non-profit. If you didn’t know, The House of Ruth is a non-profit organization that provides safe, temporary, housing for women and children coming from battered homes. They rely on this community fundraiser and donations to help them provide their services throughout the year.
From December 8, 2020 through December 23, 2020, volunteers will wrap your gifts purchased at Eagle Eye of all sizes, with proceeds going directly back to the shelter. Gift wrapping prices vary by package size. All proceeds will go to The House of Ruth. They accept cash or checks, made out to “The House of Ruth.”
Wrapping Schedule at Eagle Eye (3535 Ross Clark Circle, Dothan):
- Tuesday – Friday from 3 pm – 7 PM
- Saturdays from 9 AM – 9 PM
