Wreaths Support Integration

For more than 90 years, Alto-Reste Park has been celebrating life and supporting families in our community. Today encouraging families and celebrating life is still our focus.

So for the month of October, we’re honored to be partnering with The Arc of Blair County and the Empowering Lives Foundation. These two organizations work hard to improve the quality of life for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

   

To support this amazing work, Alto-Reste is continuing our tradition of donating a portion of the proceeds of our annual Winter Wreath sales to both organizations. Also like last year, Members of the Arc and Empowering Lives will also be involved in the production of our wreaths this year.

 

Last year, we were able to donate $1000 to each organization. So by purchasing one this year, you, too, can be involved in helping others achieve possibilities. (Click on the image of the order form to download a copy).

 

You don’t have to be a patron of Alto-Reste to order a wreath. You may purchase a wreath to display at your home or at memorialization sites in other parks and cemeteries.

However, all orders must be received by November 2, 2018.

The placing of wreaths in Alto-Reste Park will begin Monday, November 26, 2018.

If you wish to purchase a wreath for your home or to place somewhere other than Alto-Reste Park, these wreaths can be picked up at the Alto-Reste Park office on or after November 26th.

 

 

The Arc of Blair county and the Empowering Lives foundation are also in need of volunteers. Even dedicating just one hour a month can make a significant impact.
