On Wednesday, July 1st, we officially begin our month-long celebration of Giving in July!

The entire month of July is dedicated to sharing the Wreaths Across America mission to REMEMBER, HONOR, and TEACH by highlighting those giving back to their local communities. As we kick off #GivingInJuly, we invite you to join us by giving to other like-minded charities, community programs, and civic groups who are contributing to your local community.

This year, we’re especially excited to be hosting a VIRTUAL Giving in July Concert Event LIVE on the Wreaths Across America – Official Facebook Page, on Sunday, July 19th, from 7-10pm EST!

Join us for this LIVE event where you’ll enjoy our featured music artists who embody patriotism, are supportive of our country’s veterans and their families, and who are actively involved in furthering the Wreaths Across America mission to REMEMBER, HONOR, and TEACH. You’ll also hear a touching message from Operation RedWing Lone Survivor, United States Navy SEAL (RET) Marcus Luttrell and his wife, Melanie. In addition, we’ll be highlighting volunteers from all across the country and their stories of giving back to their local communities.

Remember. Honor. Teach.

Help a Sponsorship Group Giving Back in Your Community!

In 2007, Wreaths Across America expanded its annual wreath placement event to enable groups and organizations to support national, state and local participating cemeteries across the country. We established the Group Sponsorship Program to benefit other like-minded charities, community programs and civic groups through the sale of wreath sponsorships for participating locations. Sponsorship Groups that sign up as a $5-back member, receive $5-of-each-$15 wreath sponsorship to be used for their own local programs happening in the community.

Since its start, Wreaths Across America has given back more than $12M to programs across the country through this offering.

We are #AmericaStrong

“In these troubled times, it’s important for us as Americans to look to those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom and emulate their character and courage. Having been given the freedom to agree, disagree and compromise we must come together to build a path to the future for the next generation instilling in them the responsibility to care for that freedom. Together we can and will face these difficult times ahead with renewed commitment to remain, as always, America Strong!”

– Karen Worcester, Executive Director, Wreaths Across America
