Making a Christmas Wreath for a Cause

This year the Virginia/West Virginia chapter of IIDA held a wreath decorating contest at the annual holiday party, with all entries donated to the Saint Mary’s Home for Disabled Children to be used for their holiday decorations. HBA submitted an animal print themed wreath, complete with  tiger, zebra, and giraffe. While we did not take home the prize, it was a great time decorating the wreath for such a worthy cause. (We may never get all of the glitter out of the color studio carpet.)


Saint Mary’s provides a loving home for children ages newborn through 21 who have physical and intellectual disabilities. Round the clock care is provided for up to 92 residents. With the addition of the Albero House in 2013, up to 12 adults over age 21 can also be cared for. To find out more about Saint Mary’s, please visit their website:
The Hampton Roads city center of the IIDA Virginia/West Virginia has made donations to Saint Mary’s for many years now. In addition to the wreaths, stocking stuffers were also donated this year. In previous years toys and decorated stockings have been donated. Visit the chapter’s website to find out about how to join IIDA and view other events they hold:
