OKLAHOMA CITY – For the holidays, people in Oklahoma City will be given an opportunity to “wrap up homelessness” as a way to support those transitioning out of homelessness.
The Curbside Chronicle, a magazine who employs those who are homeless, has teamed up with popular local artists to design holiday wrapping paper for sale to the public.
Artists Bert Seabourn, Bob Palmer, Christie Owen, Clint Stone, Erin Cooper, Jason Pawley, Kathryn Wakefield, Kelsey Karper, Sam Washburn, and Tanner Frady will be helping.
Each package includes five 24″ x 36″ sheets of wrapping papers, and is sold for $10.
In addition to providing a source of income, the Curbside Chronicle works with their vendors to break down barriers of traditional employment, and more.
Packages can be purchased directly from Curbside vendors, local retailers throughout the Oklahoma City metro, and at various holiday events like the Myriad Garden Winter Shoppes.
“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.”
All proceeds 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.
