Gift Wrap and Give Back


Every day from now until December 24th, we are excited to be offering gift wrapping services at Conestoga Mall in support of Grand River Hospital! Our gift wrapping station has its own storefront near Entrance #1 between IceWave Jewellers and Freedom Mobile, directly across from Children's Place and Old Navy.

Our incredible team of volunteers will be there every day during mall hours to help you with your holiday wrapping and receive donations. Because even during the holidays, care never stops at Grand River Hospital. 

Thanks to this great but recent opportunity, we have decided to pivot—instead of hosting a separate Grand Gather event as we had originally planned, we have decided to incorporate the elements of Grand Gather into Gift Wrapping at Conestoga Mall all month long!

In addition to getting your gifts wrapped and supporting local health care, you can also drop off items for donation that will make the holidays a little brighter for patients at the hospital. Find out more about Gifts from the Heart and the types of gifts you can give. (As always, you also have the option to schedule a time to drop off donated items to at the Grand River Hospital Foundation office at 40 Green St. Kitchener, ON)

Our awesome team of volunteers will also be delivering FREE packages of PPE to the members of our community to help keep everyone safe this winter. For health and safety reasons, theses particular items cannot be used by staff at the hospital, so using them to help our community is the next best thing! Packages will include masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and other PPE items. Order free packages of PPE for you and you loved ones this holiday season!

Interested in getting involved? It's not too late! We are still encouraging anyone who would like to help with the event to sign up to volunteer. Shifts are 3 - 4 hours long, and you will be helping greet guests, wrap gifts and accept donations in support of the hospital. Email Stephanie Makrydakis at stephanie@grhf.ca to sign up!

As you do your holiday shopping at Conestoga Mall, make sure you come visit our team and get your gifts wrapped in support of Grand River. See you there!
