Wreaths For Hope™ is an organization that raises money through the sales of balsam ribbon wreaths to support funding for cancer research. Our purpose is to partner with large and small foundations, groups and organizations to help raise money and bring awareness to cancer-related causes and patient programs and services.
Our mission is to uphold our community values with the integrity, compassion and personal ethos in which the organization was founded to help raise money for what the human spirit believes in. At the same time, providing sustainable employment opportunities for our local area and bettering the lives of everyone involved.
Our vision for the future is to build this organization beyond a fundraising effort, making it into a well-known national movement for the fight against cancer.
Mission: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $130 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 650 research projects nationally.
