Students at The Depot youth center in Darien are busy wrapping hundreds of gifts this holiday season - wrapping more than 500 gifts after starting just last week.
Many high school and middle school students have been volunteering their time to wrap gifts at The Depot for nearly three decades.
Charlie Hughes says Christmas is a special time of the year for him to spend time with family and friends.
"I always love listening to music and sitting by the fire," Hughes says.
Hughes and a group of other students are making sure this time of year is also special for many families in the community.
Caruso says wrapping gifts is rewarding.
"I've been in Darien since I was 2, so it's really important for me to stay engaged in the community," Caruso says.
Sophie Ezbiansky says even just the smallest act of kindness could make the best part of someone's day.
"I think it's really important to give back to the people who are part of your community and you're living with," Ezbiansky says.
Those interested in having their holiday gifts wrapped still have time.
The Depot is accepting drop-offs until tomorrow with pickup available on Thursday. Click here for more information.
