ANN ARBOR – Do you love wrapping presents? Or simply feel like giving back to the community?

The annual Magic of Christmas program is back and in need of participants in two upcoming wrapping parties. Now in its 24th year, MOC is providing gifts for more than 500 Washtenaw County children whose families are undergoing financial hardship or crisis.

The program was founded in 1996 by University of Michigan alumna and former LPGA Tour player Debbie Williams-Hoak. Williams-Hoak partnered with the Ann Arbor Police Department to help shop, wrap and deliver presents -- with some officers dressing as Santa.

Dates and times:

Friday, Dec. 6 and Friday, Dec. 13: 6 p.m.

The wrapping parties are large and will require two thousand gifts to be wrapped within three hours.
