Wreaths for Recovery

Crossroads and Milestone Foundation are teaming up to decorate and sell festive wreaths this holiday season in various locations around Portland and Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

Crossroads and Milestone Foundation – both nonprofit organizations – are getting their clients involved, using the “Wreaths for Recovery” project as a treatment tool.

Clients from the Crossroads halfway house and Milestone extended care facility are working together throughout the whole process, from decorating the wreaths to the sales and marketing. The experience is a team-building activity that also teaches them how to run a seasonal business.

The 22″ Maine balsam wreaths can be purchased for $20.00. Proceeds of the wreath sales will benefit Crossroads and Milestone Foundation substance abuse treatment programs directly.

The wreaths are now available for sale at the following locations in Maine:
