Welcome to the Team Matrix Expedited Service's Wreaths Across America fundraiser page!

Matrix Expedited Service is a freight expedite carrier based out of Flint, Michigan.

It is our mission to make sure our fallen soldiers are not forgotten and we believe that together we can make that happen!

On December 17, 2022 at 11:00 am, we will be helping Great Lakes National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring a wreath! Each wreath counts! For every 2 wreaths sponsored on this page, the cemetery will receive a 3rd wreath for free!

Thank you so much for supporting Team Matrix Expedited Services and Wreaths Across America!
