The spirit of giving is upon us! That’s why AARP is spreading some cheer during this holiday season by offering to wrap your gifts for free at HalleBration, a city-wide  Holiday Celebration and Gift Mall.

HalleBration provides a venue for Cincinnatians to have a family friendly event to enjoy the holidays and to purchase gifts and other items for the holiday. You’ll also enjoy learning about services from businesses and local nonprofits.

AARP will also help you avoid holiday scams through the AARP Fraud Watch Network. It provides resources to help you spot and avoid identity theft and fraud so you can protect yourself and your family. Sign up to get watchdog alerts and stay up to date on con artists’ latest tricks. It’s free of charge for everyone—members, non-members and people of all ages.
