If you need to buy the paper retail, Tuesday Morning is a great source. Good paper in large rolls at excellent prices.

IME, this is mostly going to be a girl thing; very few boys or men are going to be skilled decorative wrappers.

Be sure to collect some plain light cardboard/cardstock sheets as well; they are very helpful when wrapping toys that have open areas on the front/top of the box. (You fold it in half and tape it over the open area before you wrap. The cardboard from shirts is great for this purpose.)

My sorority did this last year. We found earlier in December was busier. The last Saturday before Christmas was dead at the mall!
They provided us a free booth, and we had to supply everything else.

We have done it (and will do it again) at LLBeans. They provided everything we needed.

We scheduled 4 boys/2 adults for 1.5 hour shifts. Honestly, with kids, you're not going to get a long shift out of them.

Can't agree more to be sure everyone signed up knows how to wrap. We had some prep time before the big day practicing with newspaper.

I think it helps to if the kids can answer WHY they are having a fundraiser. (Nothing worse than one saying "because my mom told me I had to".)
Beans had a sign on the counter with our troop number, you can check if there is a way to put one up. If your group has uniforms/matching Tshirts, have everyone wear those. (We had all the boys wear their uniforms.)
