The Wreaths Across America Project is a way to say thank you and to honor our veterans and their families. Each year we collect donations in all of our offices. Our donations will go towards purchasing wreaths placed at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois. This year, National Wreath Across America Day is December 15, 2018.
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.
This annual journey for Mr. Worcester has expanded across American and beyond. Over 600 locations hold national wreath laying ceremonies throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and 24 overseas cemeteries. This year, Wreaths Across America has a goal of placing 500,000 wreaths on veterans graves nationwide. The Wreath Across America project is an opportunity for us to remember those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
