Every year, the Booksmith sets up a volunteer-staffed gift wrap station to provide the service of wrapping books.
Each shift is 3 hours and you will wrap books for tips. Tips will be collected on behalf of To the Streets, a 501c(3) which provides homeless youth in the Haight Ashbury with housing in exchange for street sweeping services. Since it started last year, To the Streets has housed over 30 youth and helped many to transition to more permanent work and living situations.
Booksmith provides the table, wrapping paper, bows and you provide the labor to wrap the gifts.
Its a really wonderful way to connect to people in the community and support a worthy cause at the holidays.
