This great charity started as a grass-roots effort to remember those willing to serve and sacrifice. Wreaths Across America is committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedoms and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect those freedoms. The Wreaths Across America convoy stops at many schools along the way. We offer learning tools, interactive media projects and opportunities for schools, 4-H, scouts and other youth groups to participate.
When you donate to Wreaths Across America, your donation helps a wreath to be placed on a military veterans’ grave. Eighty six cents of every dollar donated goes toward wreath sponsorships, shipping costs not covered by trucking partners, and fundraising group paybacks. WAA operates on the remaining margin, keeping overhead low and paying wages to just eight full-time employees. The Executive Director and Chairman takes zero salary and are 100% committed to the mission.
We are proud to support a charity this holiday season by honoring them with a custom handmade shadow box that will be displayed in the Arlington National Cemetery Museum. Learn how you can sponsor a wreath at a cemetery near you.
