In the 2016 holiday season, CNIB hosted the gift wrap station in the mall. From December 2nd-24th, 2016, more than 200 volunteers worked cheerfully to raise $14,825 for CNIB by wrapping a total of 3404 gifts. Shopper’s Mall was the title sponsor of the fundraiser, and generously provided the venue and the gift wrap supplies. The gift wrap station was given prime real estate within Shoppers Mall, just beyond Guest Services and between Michael Hill Jewelry Store and Charm Jewelers.
