Gift wrap from Sally Foster is no longer available. According to Entertainment Fundraising, the company that previously operated the Sally Foster gift wrap fundraiser campaign that earned money for schools, it has been discontinued. When its parent firm entered bankruptcy in 2013, the programme came to an end.
Sally Foster used to sell upmarket gift wrap paper to schools and other charitable organisations. According to the Los Angeles Times, the paper was of superior quality and weight to that sold in drugstores and cheap retailers. Each year, there were designs for Christmas, Hanukkah, birthdays, and other holidays. The earnings from sales were split 50/50 among the schools.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Sally Foster company began in 1973 and had grown to roughly 2,500 accounts by 1989, outgrowing its production facilities. The Fosters’ company was then purchased by Bill Moore, a neighbour, who retained the Fosters as advisors. Moore sold the Sally Foster brand to Entertainment Publications for $31 million in 1992.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Entertainment Publications, then known as Entertainment Promotions, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in March 2013. The company went out of business and lay off 667 people. Coupon books, discount certificates, cookie dough, and Sally Foster gift wrap were among the company’s school fundraisers.
