On Dec. 15, Wreaths Across America seeks to continue its mission to “remember, honor and teach” by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies.

The non-profit organization places wreaths in Arlington National Cemetery, along with 1,400 additional locations in all 50 states, at sea and abroad.

Wreaths Across America is seeking donations, especially for two of the Southwest Florida cemeteries that are well short of its goals.

Find locations in Southwest Florida at the Wreaths Across America website.
