Brad's Beat: Wrapping for a Cure
By Brad Douglas
CARTHAGE, MO.--- If you can't wrap a Christmas present, there's now some hope and it will raise money for a good cause. For the fifth year in a row, Lodema Martin is wrapping for a cure. You can bring in your Christmas presents and she will wrap them for a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The money will be used for research to find a cure. In the last five years, they have been able to donate more than $6,000. The group also relies on donations of paper and boxes.
"If we go out and buy it, we don't have any money to give to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, but everything is donated. If you have any plane paper or wrapping, bring it in. Boxes, bring it in," said Lodema Martin, Wrapping for a Cure.
The shop is setup across the street from Lowe's in Carthage, open from Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
