That's a 'wrap' at Walgreens for Boys and Girls Club of Tucson

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, Walgreens employees will make sure hundreds of Christmas gifts are ready to be handed out to kids at Boys and Girls Clubs across Tucson.

Many managers and employees from stores around town will be busy wrapping up hundreds of gifts.  For many kids it will be their only gift.

Since Thanksgiving toys have been collected at Walgreens stores throughout Tucson to make sure kids at Boys and Girls Clubs have some holiday cheer.

This is the fourth year in a row that Walgreens has teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club of Tucson for the toy drive and gift wrapping event. 

Once the toys are all wrapped up, they will be given out at the clubhouse holiday parties this week. This is a special event the Boys and Girls Club of Tucson looks forward to. 

They say it makes a huge difference to the many kids in their club whose families are struggling this holiday season. 

The gift wrapping event will be at 1 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club administrative office at Grant and Country Club.
