Wreaths Across America
We have created a fundraiser for Harrington Parks & Recreation that not only helps us raise funds for equipment but more importantly honors the men and women of our military. Wreath Across America is a non-profit organization that assist local organizations in placing wreaths on the grave of those that served our country's military branches. By sponsoring a wreath, you will be thanking a member of our military for their sacrifice to our country. We are looking to gather sponsors for 250 wreaths. The cost is $15.00 per wreath. Harrington Parks & Recreation receives $5.00 of that amount to use for our programs here in Harrington. Then on December 14, 2019 at 12 pm, please join us as we place these wreaths on the graves of our heroes. All we need is you! Please follow the link to our page and support a wreath, sign up to help place a wreath, or both!
