Each wreath costs $15. Donating to purchase wreaths is an excellent way for our grateful community, state, and nation to say “thank you” to our veterans for their service to our country.

Wreaths Across AmericaTM is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2007.  It is the goal of the foundation to have wreaths at more than 2,500 participating locations in all 50 U.S. states, including locations at sea and abroad. In 2020, over 2 million veterans were honored with a wreath.

The Wreaths Across America mission is to Remember, Honor, and Teach by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington, as well as at veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states, at sea, and overseas.

Remember our veterans who are devoted sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers in the line to protect our freedoms. Honor our veterans by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December on National Wreaths Across America Day. Teach younger generations about the value of their freedom and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect those freedoms.
