Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to remember the men and women who served our country and honor our military and their families.  Each December, they sponsor a National Wreaths Across America Day and coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and  2,500 additional locations in all 50 states, at sea, and abroad.

Our Knights of Columbus Assembly is planning to fund 500+ wreaths to be placed at veterans’ headstones at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton. Each wreath is $15. For every two wreaths we purchase, WAA provides an additional wreath so our contributions go 50% farther. The Assembly is also looking for volunteers to help lay the wreaths on Saturday, December 18 at 12:00 pm. Donate or sign up to be a volunteer here.
