"This particular opportunity with the wreaths is a way to beautify the area and also contribute to a charitable cause."For $15, a group can decorate a wreath they had last year. For $25, sponsors can decorate a wreath any way they would like and for $50 they can have their name or logo put on a pre-decorated wreath. The wreaths are available for sponsorship until Monday, September 24 and need to be ready to be hung up by October 1.
