December 15, 2022
Holiday gift wrapping services are being offered by Maui Economic Opportunity’s Youth Services from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21, at MEO in Wailuku and on Moloka‘i.

There will be a drive-thru in the MEO parking lots at 99 Mahalani St., off the J. Walter Cameron Center driveway on Maui, and at 380 Kolapa Place in Kaunakakai.

Gifts may be dropped off until 1 p.m. and picked up before 3 p.m.

The gift wrapping is free but donations are appreciated.

Last year, the gift wrapping event raised $800, which was used for Youth Services activities, such as visits to the Maui Ocean Center and Haleakala.

The program, which works with more than 800 intermediate and high school youth on Maui and Moloka‘i annually, focuses on prevention of harmful behaviors, such as smoking, drug and alcohol use, bullying and suicide. Staff present evidence-based curriculum in schools and organize activities after-school and during fall, winter and summer breaks.

The activities strengthen the family, embrace culture and community service, and reinforce healthy lifestyles and leadership.

COO Gay Sibonga, tapping her years of gift wrapping at the old Liberty House, works with La`akea Wells and others on Monday at MEO in preparation for the 6th Annual MEO Youth Services Gift Wrapping. The annual event is set for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 21, at MEO on Maui and Moloka‘i.
