Ways to Support

National Wreaths Across America Day is an event held in more than 3,000 local communities each December. It is a day where volunteers of all ages, demographics and backgrounds gather to place live balsam veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of our nation’s heroes, joining together to say each of their names out loud one more time and in doing so, keeping their memories alive.

Although best known for this annual nationwide event, Wreaths Across America’s mission to Remember the Fallen, Honor those that serve and their families, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom is yearlong and carried out by individuals finding a way to serve in their communities. Wreaths Across America offers many programs and opportunities to share the stories of veterans, their families and those who serve our country. We invite you to learn more about how you too can get involved in the mission, TODAY!


  • Wreaths Across America’s annual pilgrimage from Columbia Falls, Maine, to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia has become known as the world’s largest veterans’ parade, stopping at schools, monuments, veterans’ homes, and communities all along the way to remind people how important it is to Remember, Honor and Teach.

  • The Remembrance Tree Program provides a living memorial to loved ones lost. A replica dog tag is made in honor of your loved one and it is attached to the service branch next to the trunk of an evergreen tree on the tip land in Maine where the brush is harvested every third year to make veterans' wreaths.

  • Through Wreaths Across America’s national group sponsorship program, it has helped other nonprofits and civic groups such as Civil Air Patrol, Scouts, 4- H Clubs, local VFWs and American Legions raise funds for their own community needs.
