Wreaths Across America kicks off giving in July 2021, local groups benefit
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Throughout the month of July, national nonprofit Wreaths Across America will feature its annual Giving in July campaign — a month dedicated to the groups and individuals giving back in their communities while helping to share the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.
Locally, groups like Camp Nelson Honor Guard, Fort Knox Spouses and Community Club, Gov Isaac Shelby Chapter – Sons of the American Revolution, and Friends of Lexington Fisher House Inc., will raise valuable funds through the sale of wreaths sponsorships.
Since its founding in 2007, WAA has partnered with hundreds of charities, community programs, and civic groups throughout the country to remember and honor the nation’s veterans and active duty military all year long.
Giving in July celebrates these groups and highlights the opportunity to ‘do good twice’ through the sponsorship of veterans’ wreaths through the organization’s Group Sponsorship Program.
Through the program, donations received in fact ‘do good twice’ because WAA gives back $5 of each $15 wreath sponsorship made to support the local group’s own mission, which include programs helping veterans, military families, youth and more, in communities across the country.
This year, more than 2,500 cemeteries will participate in National Wreaths Across America Day, including Camp Nelson National Cemetery, Fort Knox Cemetery, and Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Kentucky on Saturday, Dec. 18, 2021.
