HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The volunteer organization “Wreaths for Veterans” is asking for people to help prepare wreaths to place on veterans’ graves in the coming weeks.

Volunteers are asked to help get the wreaths ready November 2, 3 and 4. Just come to the Huntsville City Schools Warehouse at the corner of Bob Wallace Avenue and L&N Drive, where you can help fluff the wreaths and attach bows. No experience is needed, just a volunteering spirit.
