2018 Holiday Wreath Design Project

Boonton Main Street is gearing up for the 2018 holiday season! Boonton Main Street's design team is looking for donations for their annual wreath project. These wreaths are decorated and hung along Main Street to bring holiday cheer to Boonton's business district. 

Our goal is to transform 12 wreaths  for the 2018 holiday season, and each wreath costs about $80. Help us reach our goal of $1,000! Over time wreaths wear in quality, but through hand decoration, our design team can sustain them. While a few have already been made, we need funds to continue. The more we raise the more wreaths we can make!

Click here to donate! We thank you for supporting our initiatives to beautify Main Street!
