REMEMBER our fallen U.S. veterans.
HONOR those who serve.
TEACH your children the value of freedom.
Wreaths Across America's mission is to Remember, Honor and Teach. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying ceremonies are coordinated at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.
We have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.
In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
In December of 2020, Wenches with Winches were able to assist Camp Williams with their ceremony and Fort Douglas with the collection of wreaths 8 weeks later.
This year W3 have chosen to support Wreaths Across America and Fort Douglas with the help of the Utah Jeep Crew. Fort Douglas has just under 1400 Soldiers that need to be REMEMBERED and HONORED. It is now our turn to TEACH the community about this opportunity.
This year our Jeep community has really come through in a big way and we can't thank you enough! Here is a breakdown in the funds raised by W3 and UJC:
$150 (10 wreaths): From UJC Cars and Coffee
$236 (just under 15 wreaths): From W3 Trunk or Treat event
$614 (just under 41 wreaths): From Orange Peel and Shake Shack
$400 (just under 27 wreaths): From individual donations directly to W3
This brings our total wreaths to 94 wreaths directly sponsored for this event. There have been MANY MANY more wreaths sponsored directly on the WAA website from W3 and UJC members as well!
THANK YOU all for your continued support and contributions to this event!
