WASHINGTON, December 3, 2013 — The organization responsible for the annual wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery is looking to the public for help this year.
Wreaths Across American, which every year donates 135,000 wreaths- as well as the time to lay them down and pick them back up during the holiday season- is coming up wells short of their annual goal.
The nonprofit group expects to come up around 35,000 wreaths short. To solve that defect, the public can donate $15 to buy a wreath for the fallen soldiers resting at one of the nation’s oldest national cemeteries.
Anyone wishing to help Wreaths Across America before then can make a donation at their website: WreathsAcrossAmerica.org.
