On Monday, the Junior League of Nashville held its annual “wrapping party” where volunteers wrap gifts and toys to be distributed to all patients at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt on Christmas Day.

For more than two decades, Junior League has donated thousands of these gifts to bring cheer to those spending their holiday in the hospital. Junior League of Nashville members give more than 1,000 volunteer hours annually and have raised millions of dollars for Children’s Hospital programs since 1970.
