Christmas Wreath Project
The Christmas Wreath Project is the largest fundraiser the women participate in. Through this event, they are able to generate funds to help support their mission projects. If you have never made the wreaths before, that is okay. There are plenty of experienced wreath makers available to teach you. Don’t miss this special time to fellowship with old and new friends.
