Dear friend,

As summer nears to a close, and the focus shifts back to school (virtually, in most cases) and the fall, we can’t help but get excited for our favorite time of year, WREATH SEASON!

 

During this time of year, Wreaths Across America’s thousands of dedicated volunteers really kick up efforts to raise awareness and wreath sponsorships needed to support local efforts in their communities across the country. This year, we already have more than 2,200 participating locations registered to host wreath laying events and ceremonies as part of National Wreaths Across America Day – Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020. The team here is working with local, state and national officials to provide guidance and recommendations to host these events safely. We encourage you to find the location near you that you’d like to support and sign up to volunteer at or sponsor a $15 wreath for that location so that you will receive regular updates about that location’s event plans.

 

This year, to help build awareness for the more than 4,000 Sponsorship Groups that support the program, we’ll be featuring a “100 Day Countdown to Wreath Day.” During this 100 Day #WAACountdown we’ll highlight a new Sponsorship Group each day who is supporting the mission in their own community and understand their WHY for participating. This campaign will kick off on Saturday, Sept 10, and run through Wreath Day on Saturday, Dec. 19. Tune in to Wreaths Across America Radio’s Morning Show, Monday-Friday, 6-10am ET, to hear from different groups and follow along on social media to see daily features about these amazing volunteers and how you can support their efforts.

 

If you’ve already sponsored a wreath this year, please consider inviting someone new to the program – all are welcome to help place wreaths and every $15 received honors an American Hero!

 

REMEMBER. HONOR. TEACH.
