Wow. The Wrap Up! Project has had an interesting week, to say the least, due to a situation in Ephrata, PA, USA where our first scarf bombing there drew complaints from a few individuals that veterans’ memorial pictured above was being “defaced” by our group leaving items out there. As a result, the police chief in Ephrata told us to remove the items, which we did, or they would be disposed of.
The result of this situation has brought out quite an outcry of citizens in support of WUP’s work. And a result of that has been a media frenzy for WUP’s founder, Angelia Reed. She was interviewed by LNP/LancasterOnline, BRC News 11, WGAL Channel 8, WMPT Fox 43, and Penn Live. I encourage you to head on over to the WUP Facebook page for more information about the situation, what we’re going to do about it, and for further updates.
I’ll leave you with links of two of the articles that are available for your to read.

I’ll update here, too, with what’s going on with the future of Ephrata scarf bombings.
