Ceremony and Volunteer Information

Thank you for your interest in the Wreaths Across America event at Riverside National Cemetery!  

This year, the National Wreaths Across America Day event for our location will be shared virtually on social media. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold a public ceremony or open event, due to the high surges in Covid-19 spread. We are making necessary modifications for the laying of graveside wreaths to ensure the safety of all who are assigned to volunteer and participate. 

All sponsored and grave specific requests in 2020, will be placed by a small core group of predetermined volunteers. If you have questions or special requests, please contact our Volunteer Location Coordinator at katthariya.woolwine@gmail.com to receive further information or make those arrangements. All of our predetermined volunteers will be wearing the required masks and gloves. 

Thank you so much for helping to achieve our mission to "Remember, Honor and Teach".
