WREATHS OF LUV
Students from the Wreath of LUV Program sold customized holiday wreaths with fresh fir and ornaments in their Journey to My Better Self Entrepreneurship Program. Through their business entrepreneurship course, they developed a model allowing them to raise thousands of dollars. Kimbark Plaza Shopping Center in Hyde Park purchased eight wreaths to decorate their plaza and South East Chicago Commission decorated 70 poles in Kenwood, Woodlawn and Washington Park. Students sold their wreaths at Macy's on State Street. Thanks to all of the community support and contributions, the Wreath of LUV Program was a huge success. You can find our program was featured in two local newspapers, Hyde Park Herald and The Chicago Citizen, and received media coverage from ABC News 7, and Columbia College’s Metro Minutes.
