Mission Matters: Getting Ready For Veterans Day & More News From Wreaths Across America

A newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.

Hi there,

With Veterans Day approaching, we thought it timely to share our answer to an important question the organization regularly receives, “What does Wreaths Across America do for living veterans?

We remember veterans’ service and sacrifice by telling their stories so that the next generation will know the men and women who fought for our freedoms. We remember their brothers and sisters in arms who paid the ultimate sacrifice by placing wreaths on their headstones and saying their names out loud so they will not be forgotten.

Find a location near you.

We honor them and their families all year long with local events, and awareness for programs within communities across the country. Through our group fundraising program, we help local groups supporting the military and their families by helping them raise funds for their own local programs. Since 2007, Wreaths Across America has given back more than $13 million to local groups through this $5 back fundraising structure.

Find a Sponsorship Group to support.

We teach the next generation about the value and cost of our freedoms so they will remember and honor all those who served, are serving and their families. We travel the country with our Mobile Education Exhibit bringing local communities and our military together with education, stories and interactive connections.

This month, in honor of Veterans Day, we challenge you  to Remember, Honor and Teach in your community. As the holidays approach, embrace your family, your community and your freedom.

REMEMBER. HONOR. TEACH.

Sponsor Spotlight: Pilot Flying J – Round Up for Wreaths

Pilot Company announced earlier this month an in-store round-up fundraiser benefiting Wreaths Across America as part of its plans to thank and celebrate veterans this season.

The funds raised will directly support Wreaths Across America’s goal to place more than 2.2 million wreaths in all 50 states to remember and honor fallen soldiers during the holidays.

Now through Dec. 31, 2020, guests visiting any of the 750 company-operated stores in the U.S., including participating Pilot and Flying J travel centers and One9 Fuel Network stores, can opt to round-up cash purchases to the nearest whole dollar and donate the additional amount to Wreaths Across America. In support of the company’s hometown heroes, $20,000 raised through the round-up campaign will be matched by Pilot Company for a total donation of $40,000 to support the Knoxville chapter of Wreaths Across America.

Thank you, Pilot Company!
