Put a smile on the faces of people living with multiple sclerosis this Christmas!


MS and Vicinity Centres are once again working in partnership to offer gift wrapping to shoppers visiting nominated Vicinity shopping complexes across New South Wales and Victoria.


As one of the team of over 500 volunteer gift wrappers you will be supporting people affected by multiple sclerosis as you enjoy meeting people and gift wrapping with fellow volunteers. You have the chance to use your creative skills to wrap presents (even for those whose gift wrapping skills are still improving) and you also have the chance to spread some holiday cheer. 

You don't need experience to be an MS Gift Wrapper. You will be provided with clear instructions about where to go and how to get there, as well as some tricks and tips about how you can wrap. Vicinity Centres will provide the wrapping paper, ribbon and other supplies needed. 

Shifts are at various locations across New South Wales and Victoria and range from 3 - 5 hours long. Shifts vary in size between 3 - 8 people so many volunteers find gift wrapping a great opportunity to volunteer with friends and family. It is a very popular event for businesses that run volunteering programs as they can also volunteer as a group. 

Don't forget to share this page and the opportunity with your friends and family so they can join you wrapping or bring their present purchased at a Vicinity Centre for wrapping. Register now to get in as early as possible and have the best chance at being allocated your preferred shifts.
