Wreaths Across America will host a ceremony to place a memorial wreath at the South Carolina Veterans Memorial on the SC State House grounds. The ceremony will be held on Monday, December 5 at 12 p.m. Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. With over 600 locations in the United States, Wreaths Across America raises funds and seeks donations in order to adorn veteran grave sites with wreaths during the holiday season.
There will also be a ceremony at Fort Jackson National Cemetery on Saturday, December 10 at 12p.m. Wreaths Across America is hoping to place wreaths at every grave site located at Fort Jackson. In order to do so, 1400 wreaths must be donated. To date, there have only been 348 donations.
Everyone is invited to attend both ceremonies and participate in the placing of the wreaths.
If you are interested in donating a wreath, they are $15.00 each and can be purchased at www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org. For every 2 wreaths purchased, Fort Jackson receives a 3rd wreath free of charge. Please be sure to put both the cemetery code (SCFJNC) and sponsor code (SCNDV001) when ordering.
