Wreaths Across America – Ongoing Event
December 14 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm EST
Serve Our Willing Warriors will be assisting in the donation of these wreaths through our website link. By visiting www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/Va0651P, you can click on the “donate” tab to sponsor a wreath to be placed on a gravesite. The wreaths will be delivered directly to the cemetery on the event day. Volunteers will unload the wreaths from the truck for placement on the grave sites. For each wreath, $5 out of the $15 cost will be donated to Serve Our Willing Warriors to sponsor our Warrior Retreat. Our goal is to reach at least 500 donated wreaths. This would honor 500 gravesites as well as fund a week long Warrior family stay at our retreat, which averages $2,500. Please consider donating to this worthy cause to honor and respect our Nation’s fallen, while at the same time serving those who are “still in the fight” and need our support at the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run.
You may also sign up to volunteer on the website link to participate in the wreath laying on December 14th. Serve Our Willing Warriors will be taking part in the wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery. The event begins at 8:30am. Other local cemeteries participating on December 14th include Stonewall Memory Gardens and Quantico National Cemetery. Their ceremonies will begin at 12:00pm. You may choose to donate a wreath or volunteer at any of these three locations through our link.
The 2019 Motto for Wreaths Across America is “Everyone Plays a Part.” With your support, we truly can make a difference, one wreath at a time.
