The Place fundraiser makes it look a lot like Christmas

NORWICH – The Place is bringing back its Holiday Wreath Fundraiser to the community for the first time in more than four years to raise funds for program field trips and other needs of the nonprofit organization.

A limited availability of cash-and-carry wreaths will be available between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Nov. 30 at The Place's downtown Norwich location – 22 E. Main St., behind the U.S. Post Office building.

This year, The Place has deliberately aligned its fundraiser with the Norwich Merchants Association's “Small Business Saturday,” launching the wreath sale on Nov. 30 in an effort to boost foot traffic to downtown merchants.

“We are excited to launch our Holiday Wreath Fundraiser on Small Business Saturday and be a part of such a fun shop local event,”said Rebecca Sands, Executive Director of The Place.

Said Sands, “Our organization relies heavily on the support of our community donors and local businesses, and being a part of Small Business Saturday gives us the opportunity to return that support.”
