Support Wreaths Across America
NuMark Credit Union is currently collecting donations for the Wreaths Across America Project. It is our way of thanking and honoring our nation’s heroes and their families. In support of our veterans, members and non-members can visit any NuMark Credit Union location and make a donation. All monies will go towards purchasing wreaths that will be placed on grave sites at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois. Donations will be accepted through Saturday, November 23rd and we are matching up to $750! In 2018, NuMark Credit Union raised more than $4,000 and sponsored 426 wreaths placed at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. This year, National Wreath Across America Day is December 14, 2019.
Wreaths Across America™ is non profit 501-c3 organization that was formed as an extension of the Arlington Wreath Project. The Arlington Wreath program was started by Morrill Worcester in 1992 with the donation and laying of 5000 Christmas wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery. For over 20 years, wreaths have honored veterans in each branch of the military in over 1,600 participating locations in all 50 states and 24 national veteran cemeteries on foreign soil. Over 100,000 wreaths have been donated and more than 65,000 volunteers have participated in the project. To lay a wreath at a specific grave, fill out this Grave Specific Request Form and send it in before the deadline of November 20th.
