This past weekend, I had the honor of representing the Wreaths Across America family, surrounded by many of my own family, in a network morning news segment detailing our #WePledgeAllegiance challenge. The goal of sharing this message with a national audience was to serve as a reminder that now, more than ever, it is so important for us to come together as Americans.

As we head into May – a month devoted to honoring our nation’s military and their families – and we remain at home teaching our youth from kitchen tables, I encourage you that now is the time to TEACH your children the pledge of allegiance and what the flag stands for.  And most important, help them to learn about the men and women who have served and sacrificed for this country so that all who live here may remain free.️

With gratitude,

Karen Worcester
Executive Director

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 official Facebook page and use the hashtag #WePledgeAllegiance.

KID’S CORNER

13-year-old Elise Ketler is a student at the Ryan Gloyer Middle School in Pennsylvania. Elise says her Mom discovered Wreaths Across America on the internet and she participated in her first wreath-laying activities at Arlington National Cemetery in 2017 when she was in sixth grade. Elise raised enough money in 2018 to place 111 wreaths and last year she raised enough to cover 258 headstones.

To hear Elise’s story, tune in to Wreaths Across America Radio on Friday, May 1, 2020, during the LIVE Morning Show 6-10 am EST. Listen live at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/radio or download the app to your phone and listen anywhere!

In 2019, 4,078 Sponsorship Groups raised funds to sponsor veterans’ wreaths to be placed on the headstones of our nation’s military service members at 2,158 participating locations?

More than half these groups include youth and military service organizations, civic, community and athletic groups, corporate and educational programs and more. With each $15 wreath sponsored, groups are raising $5 back for their own community programs.

Find a Sponsorship Group in your community and help do good twice with your $15 by honoring a veteran AND giving back to your local community. Or, sign up to fundraise as your own Sponsorship Group in 2020.
