OKLAHOMA CITY -

People in Oklahoma City can wrap their holiday gifts in style and support people who are working to get out of homelessness at the same time. 

The Curbside Chronicle has teamed with popular local artists to design holiday wrapping paper for sale to the public. Vendors selling wrapping paper are part of a program called The Curbside Chronicle, a magazine that employs people who are homeless. 

Packages of wrapping paper can be purchased directly from Curbside vendors, at several metro retailers and at the pop-up shops at the Myriad Gardens. Each package includes five 24"x36" sheets of wrapping paper and is sold for $10. 

"The wrapping paper is a great way to make your gifts extra special this year,” said Ranya O'Connor, director of The Curbside Chronicle. "It features unique, local art and directly supports people who are working their way out of homelessness. You’ll not only be giving a gift to your friend or family member, but you’ll be giving the gift of empowerment to someone in Oklahoma City who is working to make their situation better."

Vendors wear green Curbside Chronicle vests and sell at events, on sidewalks, public spaces and at intersections throughout Oklahoma City. All proceeds from packages purchased from individuals will go directly to that individual who is working their way out of homelessness. All proceeds from store purchases will go directly to The Curbside Chronicle and its mission to employ and empower men and women transitioning out of homelessness in OKC.
