Join Wreaths Across America’s Annual Giving in July Celebration

National nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) announces the kickoff of its annual Giving in July campaign! For WAA, this annual celebration is dedicated to local groups and individuals participating in the organization’s Sponsorship Group Program. Through this unique program, supporters can help local programs make a difference in their communities with each $17 sponsorship to WAA.

Since its founding in 2007, WAA has collaborated with hundreds of charities, community programs and civic groups nationwide to remember and honor our nation’s veterans and active-duty military all year. Giving in July celebrates these groups and highlights the opportunity to give back to them through the sponsorship of veterans’ wreaths.

WAA has given back more than $25 million in local contributions through this national program over the last 16 years!

“I have long said it would be disingenuous for us as an organization whose mission is to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom if we do not support other like-minded programs doing just that in their communities,” said WAA Executive Director Karen Worcester. “Our Sponsorship Group Program is a year-round effort, but through ‘Giving in July,’ we hope to remind people that veterans and our current military serve and protect us 365 days a year, and it is never too early to make a difference in your own community.” 

More than 4,250 locations will participate in National Wreaths Across America Day this year on Saturday, December 14, 2024. This free event is open to all, and the organization encourages community members to participate by volunteering locally or sponsoring a wreath for an American hero.
