I know people in our great nation are struggling to make sense of this health epidemic brought about by COVID-19, or the Coronavirus.

I speak for both myself and the entire extended Wreaths Across America family when expressing our deep appreciation to those of you who remain on the front lines treating the ill, and fighting the spread – from the health care workers to the professional truck drivers and first responders, and all those essential individuals doing their part to keep America moving and safe, thank you.

Many times throughout our history, we’ve been called together as Americans to sacrifice and fight for our nation. Our mission to remember, honor, and teach is as important as ever and our staff and
volunteers are working to provide you with useful and educational information.

We’re using our technology channels already in place which include, Wreaths Across America
Radio, our blog and social media pages. We’ll be sharing ideas and activities with you
throughout the coming weeks to help keep your family active and connected to your communities, safely.

As always, be kind to one another and understand we’re in this together. As our slogan for 2020
reminds us, “Be An American Worth Fighting For.”

Remember. Honor. Teach. #AmericaStrong🇺🇸️

With gratitude,

Karen Worcester
Executive Director

#WePledgeAllegiance Challenge

During this time of national crisis and uncertainty, it is clear people are turning to social media to gain a sense of community and maybe even learn something along the way.

Given that children and educators (and now parents) are schooling from home, we thought one way Wreaths Across America could provide some positivity during this time is to continue to live the mission and help TEACH!

We’ve started an easy, educational, patriotic challenge that encourages kids and families to recite the Pledge of Allegiance each day. We want to hear from you and your community – join us in the #WePledgeAllegiance Challenge. Record your child(ren) reciting the pledge, tag Wreaths Across America and use the hashtag #WePledgeAllegiance.

Below, is a short video by our own beloved WAA Museum curator and retired school teacher, Mrs. Willey, teaching us all a lesson on the meaning behind the Pledge of Allegiance. If you have a few minutes to watch, please do!

It is so important, now, more than ever, that we feel connected to something greater than ourselves.
