2023 So Far
11,228 Wreaths Sponsored 26.3% to Goal 31,522 To Go!
Wreaths Across America Day 2023 will be held on December 16 this year. Just to let everyone know, we have a new Volunteer Location Coordinator this year. Please welcome Dave Klimas on board.
I am still in the learning process and will be for some time. If you have volunteered on WAA Day in a formal capacity (other than laying wreaths), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what your area of responsibility was. I do not plan on changing anything, I really just want to know things and people.
We will be doing outreach events throughout the year. Please watch our Facebook page (listed below) for events.

What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you are supporting a yearlong mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve and Teach the next generation the value of freedom. Your sponsorship will support the new and existing programs developed to share the mission. And, it will place a wreath to honor an American hero at one of more than 3,700 participating locations this year on National Wreaths Across America Day – a day set aside to lay gathers as Americans with the same goal.
We can’t do that without your support, though. Your sponsorship will ensure that a wreath is hand-crafted of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow here in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of our participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice is never forgotten.
So, what does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you have the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to those who stepped up to serve.
*Please Note: Specific locations designated as "ceremonial-only" accept a limited number of sponsorships. Any additional sponsorships received beyond those used for the ceremony will be distributed to other locations.
