The National Charity League (NCL) of Ridgefield recently put its creative side to work to make hand-stamped craft paper, gift tags and bows for Housatonic Habitat for Humanity’s “Wrapping for Habitat” fundraising event. These wrapping supplies align with Habitat’s mission of recycling and reuse.

The mother-daughter teams from NCL participate every year in Habitat’s fundraising event which takes place from Dec. 1-24, at Macy’s in the Danbury Fair Mall. Volunteers wrap gifts purchased throughout the mall in return for a donation to Housatonic Habitat. Individuals and groups interested in volunteering should contact
