Biloxi High students wrap gifts in preparation for Project Presents Delivery Day

With the help from the Project Presents program, more than 30 families and at least 70 kids will have gifts to unwrap for Christmas.

Biloxi High School’s Campus Service Council wrapped presents today for the big delivery this Friday.

Santa’s helpers wrapped hundreds of gifts, customized with kids’ names and separated by family.

Each year, Project Presents spreads Christmas cheer delivering gifts to Coast families in need. This effort takes weeks of preparation from shopping, wrapping individual presents, and then delivery from students. Biloxi High student Julia Guice said, “This is my first year actually being hands on with Project Presents. So, to actually deliver and to see how we really truly impact people is really meaningful because you can do something and feel good about doing that thing, but once you see the impact, it’s just 20 times better.”

Two families picked up gifts from the school today, leaving with smiles and hugs for Biloxi students.
