Dear Michael,

Memorial Day is dedicated to those who served.  Over the past eleven years, it has been an honor to work alongside the incredible volunteers who come out, year after year, to help prepare and place flowers throughout the cemetery.

Our sponsors and donors help us purchase the flowers from California and South America, and deliver them to Arlington National Cemetery. However, it is the volunteers who make every year at ANC a fulfilling and unforgettable experience.  From active-duty personnel to families with teenaged children, every person who has given their time has truly created this annual Memorial Day tradition.

Some volunteers come in early to help prepare the flowers, others take an hour and a half to place over one hundred flowers at grave sites, reading the inscription and saying a few words of thanks at each headstone.  The Foundation also hands out flowers to families as they enter Arlington National Cemetery, both by car on Memorial Avenue, and visitors walking in through the Welcome Center.

The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation events are only possible with the ongoing dedication from the amazing people, like you, who volunteer to help.

This 2021 we hope to place 250,000 flowers at Arlington National Cemetery, so volunteers are as important as ever.  The Foundation will be at the cemetery over Memorial Day Weekend, click below to register to volunteer.
To help us place a flower at every site at Arlington, please consider donating here. Every dollar you give places an additional flower at a headstone at Arlington National Cemetery.
Corporate sponsors have greatly supported the Foundation over the years.  To find out how your company and associates can participate at ANC this Memorial Day, follow the link below or write us at info@memorialdayflowers.org.
