The Asian American Journalists Association Florida Chapter wrapped dozens of holiday gifts and books at Barnes and Noble in south Tampa on Saturday, December 10, 2016. Every holiday season, the national bookstore chain provides free gift-wrapping paper for non-profits to wrap items for customers and raise money for their group.
