Van Millwork Showroom in Needham is the setting for the third annual Festival of Wreaths Holiday Showhouse – which benefits the Room to Dream Foundation.
The mission of the Room to Dream Foundation is to create healing environments in hospitals, communities, and homes for children and adolescents who are facing chronic illnesses. As they recuperate and recover, our hope is that their renovated spaces will improve their quality of life, promote strength, imagination, self-worth, and aid in their recovery processes. The Room to Dream Foundation focuses its services on children and families living in low- and moderate-income urban and suburban areas. In order to complete each renovation, we purchase all of the furnishings and supplies. Every purchase is tailored to the specific needs of a child or family. Through a caring staff of professional and amateur artists, interior decorators, and volunteers, we design and transform living spaces that give children and adolescents room to dream of a healthier future.
Below are images of a few of the rooms. There is only one more day of public viewings and the Gala is on Saturday. So, if you’re in the area and want a little Christmas cheer while doing some good for those in need, then this is the place to be!
