SHADY GROVE—Several shifts of “elves” from the Rotary Club of Waynesboro and the Waynesboro Area Senior High School magically appeared this week to wrap 350 gifts for 171 children from 86 local families. 

The wrapping event, held at Hurley Auctions, followed a Rotarian shopping event.

The project is in conjunction with Waynesboro Community and Human Services, which has helped identify families in need.

“It’s great to be able to help Santa this way,” said Tracy Holliday, Rotary’s activity chair for Toys for Children. 

After wrapping, gifts will be sorted and packaged for delivery to all the children in a family to get ready for early deliveries next week.   

The Future Business Leaders of America students from WASHS also wrapped and packaged.

Others who participated include: NHS faculty lead Katie Geesaman; FBLA members Kalis Miller and Anjolee Smith; and Rotarians Anne Shepard, Valorie Dick, Sue Barthalow and Ann and Dan DeDona.
