Celebrate Giving Tuesday with Wreaths Across America

Each year, organizations and individuals worldwide celebrate #GivingTuesday, the global day of giving. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on November 29, 2022, just a few short weeks ahead of our annual National Wreaths Across America Day, which will be observed at more than 3,000 locations across the United States thanks to the dedication and hard work of thousands of core volunteers.

The fact that so many volunteers have come forward to join our mission this year when the challenges are more significant than ever truly leaves our organization humbled and thankful. Thanks to you:

We will place wreaths at more locations than ever before 

We will support thousands of veteran and civic organizations in communities across the country through our sponsorship groups program

We will REMEMBER each one of our fallen U.S. veterans

We will HONOR those who serve

We will TEACH the next generation about the value of freedom

If the same is true for you, use the resources here to share with your community!
