2023 So Far
0 Wreaths so Far

Thank you to everyone who signed up to volunteer at both locations! We have an unprecedented amount of volunteers for each ceremony, so high that we do not have enough wreaths, or space to accommodate everyone. 

Therefore we sadly must ask anyone who has not already signed up to volunteer... to refrain from doing so at our locations. 


We are so thankful for your interest and generosity and want to make sure this is a pleasant experience for everyone, but it is growing too large for our means. 


On National Wreath Laying Day- Saturday, December 17, 2022, we will be holding TWO ceremonies:

@ 10 am - at Laurel Hill East in Philadelphia

and

@ 3 pm- at Laurel Hill West in Bala Cynwyd

Thank you so much for supporting Laurel Hill and Wreaths Across America!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us! 

After an unprecedented number of early volunteer sign-ups, we regret that we are not able to accommodate any more volunteers.  If you have not already signed up to volunteer, we ask that you consider signing up for a different cemetery or trying again in 2023.
