Wreaths Across America
By early 2007, with so many requests for cemetery wreaths, the Worcesters reached out to the community and the nonprofit group Wreaths Across America™ was formed. Mr. Worcester doubled his yearly pledge to Arlington to 10,000 wreaths and continued his tradition of sending 2,500 to the Maine Veterans Cemetery along with providing wreaths for the veteran’s graves in the local communities of the small county he grew up in. Again in 2010 Ceremonial wreaths for each branch of the military were sent to all of the participating State and National cemeteries along with many local town cemeteries and monuments. Wreaths will also be provided for 24 offshore cemeteries, including Normandy Beach and a large Veteran’s commemorative wreath will be sent to each state’s State House for the ceremony on the Monday prior to the WAA Saturday event.
Inspired by his commitment Wreaths Across America™ has turned its attention to answering the requests of many to emulate the Arlington project at their State veteran’s cemeteries. By offering sponsorships to the public, Wreaths Across America™ hopes that one day every veteran’s resting place will be adorned with a wreath. We need your help to make this a reality.
Your wreath sponsorship places a wreath on a Veteran’s grave and helps to fund Veteran and educational outreach.
