Wreaths Across America
Saturday, December 15th, 2012, 11:45AM
2011 marked the 21st anniversary of Worcester Wreath Company donating Maine wreaths to adorn the headstones of our Nation’s Veterans at Arlington National Cemetery. Worcester Wreath will again donate 7 ceremonial wreaths to over 600 State, National and local cemeteries across the Country in 2012. In 2011, Wreaths Across America and our national network of volunteers laid 325,000 remembrance wreaths at 750 locations in the United States and 24 overseas locations.
In response to the many voices who wanted to share in the project, the non-profit Wreaths Across America organization was formed (EIN: 20-8362270) to expand the program by offering supporters the opportunity to sponsor a wreath. Our goal is to one day see every veterans grave in the country covered to honor every Veteran during the holidays. In 2008 we expanded once again to give even more organizations the chance to help bring our goal to fruition by providing the opportunity to fund raise for their organizations needs along with helping Wreaths Across America gather sponsorships for wreaths.
Sponsorships are $15 each. Proceeds place a wreath at one of the participating cemeteries, help support our fundraising partners, educational and veterans services outreach. Please note that all sponsorships are sent directly to the location and no wreaths are sent to the individuals purchasing sponsorships.
There is no stipulation for participation in these activities. We welcome all to join us at Wreaths Across America as the organization was formed to promote and coordinate sponsorship of wreaths for the other national, state and local cemeteries that have shown a desire to emulate the Arlington wreath-laying event. If you would like to participate or help bring sponsored wreaths to your local community, please contact us and we will help connect you with other groups already working in your are
