ALTOONA — Starting later this week, families will be able to exchange their faded or torn American flags for new 3-foot by 5-foot flags at Wolf Furniture and Gardiner Wolf Furniture retailers.

The exchange begins Friday, June 29 and ends Wednesday, July 4 at the 17 showrooms in  Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. The company’s Frederick Clearance Outlet in Maryland will not be participating in the program.

“Home is where the heart is, and the American flag represents the heart of every American’s shared home, our great country,” said Chris Pelcher, executive vice president and general manager of Wolf Furniture and Gardiner Wolf Furniture. “We help families beautify their homes daily, and we want their flags to look beautiful waving from the front porches and backyards in every community we serve.”

The faded or torn flags will be retired and respectfully disposed of in accordance with the US Flag Code.
