Carson Kressley & the NJ Military Mamas Holiday Gift Wrapping

Carson Kressley & the NJ Military Mamas Holiday Gift Wrapping

Tis the holiday season for giving!

Especially for the NJ Military Mamas, who are spreading the gift of giving to military families in New Jersey. These members are determined to help all those who serve the country and bring the community together. On December 15th, this amazing group of women joined together to do a gift wrapping party. Hosted in the home of the Military Mama’s Chapter leader, Karen Schweighofer, they were met with none other than “Queer Eye”‘s Carson Kressley, who is also a professional gift wrapper thanks to his judging in the show “Wrap Battle”.

It’s Facebook’s More Together Giving Season campaign, a time where everyone comes together to do more for loved ones and their communities. Which is how Carson Kressley was able to find their gift wrapping event. What a wonderful surprise and help he was to be able to participate in gift wrapping for NJ military families in need.

These gifts will be delivered to military families and veterans in need, spreading the joy of the holiday season.

Karen commented, “It was fabulous to come together with other NJ families to help our fellow military families. This is what Military Mamas Network is all about — we’re 82 members here in NJ of over 18,000 nationwide sharing a common bond thanks to the power of Facebook groups.”

This is a great way of spreading cheer this holiday season.
