Wreaths Across America
REMEMBER. HONOR. TEACH
Arizona Veterans' Memorial Cemetery Foundation, Inc. - Marana is fundraising to support Wreaths Across America, specifically to earn sponsorships for veterans' wreaths to be placed at the Arizona Veterans' Memorial Cemetery in Marana, AZ on National Wreaths Across America Day —Saturday, December 17, 2022.
Each year, millions of Americans come together to REMEMBER the fallen, HONOR those that serve and their families, and TEACH the next generation about the value of freedom. This gathering of volunteers and patriots takes place in local and national cemeteries in all 50 states - most recently at more than 3,100 participating locations - as part of National Wreaths Across America Day. Each year, a new theme is chosen to help volunteers and supporters focus their messaging and outreach in their own communities. Today, the national nonprofit announces the theme for 2022 is “Find a way to serve.”
