Giving in July for Wreaths Across America is an idea that reminds us to remember and honor our country’s veterans each and every day of the year, not just in December. Like Christmas in July, thinking about the holidays during the summer months provides us with the perfect opportunity to encourage others to get involved early and support not only our mission, but other groups in their communities playing a part to Remember, Honor and Teach.

Our veterans and our current military serve and protect us 365 days a year, providing us with freedoms that we enjoy as citizens every day in this country. More details about this year’s Giving in July effort can be read below. Thank you for your support of the mission year-round.

Remember – Honor – Teach

With gratitude,
Karen Worcester

Doing Good Twice: Midwest Honor Flight, Sioux Center, IA 
Wreaths Across America is proud to partner with nonprofits and veteran service organizations across the United States in supporting our nation’s heroes and thanking them for their service. Through our fundraising group efforts, Wreaths Across stimulates other charitable funds by returning $5 of every $15 wreath sponsorship raised. In doing so, we “do good twice,” recognizing the commitment made by veteran service organizations and other nonprofits to support Wreaths Across America by directly giving back to their missions in turn.

The Midwest Honor Flight is one of these groups. Read on to hear about the important work they do to honor our nation’s heroes, both living and at rest.

Did You Know?

A portion of every race registration will sponsor a wreath. Can’t join us in Maine? Become a virtual participant and your registration will sponsor two wreaths! You can even designate your sponsored wreath(s) for a specific location or fundraising group. 

Everyone Plays A Part
The 10 balsam bouquets comprising each veteran’s wreath are symbolic of so much to us at Wreaths Across America. Represented here by hands, they demonstrate the many ways individuals and communities come together to Remember, Honor and Teach.

Each month, we’ll share stories from across the country of the different ways to #PlayAPart2019.
