Saturday wreath sale benefits families experiencing homelessness

Posted

There’s something meaningful about decorating the front door of your home for the holidays, and even more so when it’s benefitting those in the community without their own place to call home.

Volunteers, donors, and businesses from across the state are pitching in to create one-of-a-kind wreaths again this year to sell at the 20th Annual Lucy’s Hearth Designer Wreath Sale on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Easton’s Beach Rotunda in Newport. The sale will be ongoing from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Proceeds from the annual sale benefit Lucy’s Hearth, a shelter in Middletown for children and families experiencing homelessness.

“Hanging a wreath on a door during the holidays is so symbolic of all we have to be grateful for at the end of each year,” said Ashley Salemi Tarvis, director of Lucy’s Hearth. “We hope that by bringing the community together to make and purchase these wreaths, we can all be a part of achieving housing stability for all.”
