Orders can be shipped anywhere in the continental United States and can include a gift message. The wreaths will be delivered to recipients during the first two weeks after Thanksgiving. The cost is $39, which includes shipping. Funds raised support local scholarships and youth programs, including the annual Middle School Brain Bowl.
