Alexandria's Viking Plaza was a busy place to be Saturday as shoppers scurried for Christmas gifts. The Christmas countdown has just four days remaining.

Volunteers with Titus2 Homes, a Christ-centered home to help women in need, were busy wrapping presents and received donations for their expertise.

Titus2 will continue to provide wrapping through 5 p.m. today, Saturday.
