Boys Republic and the Della Robbia wreath

In 1907, Margaret Fowler founded the Boys Republic to house, teach and inspire teenage boys whose personal histories included abuse and broken families. The organization's motto: "Nothing without labor." Residents have been making – and Tinsel Town celebrities have been endorsing -- Della Robbia Christmas wreaths made by the residents for decades.
