Wreaths Across America Project Needs You!
Saturday, December 18, 2021, is National Wreaths Across America Day in Kaufman County and across the nation. On this day, we will not only thank an interred veteran for their sacrifices, but also say their name aloud and keep their memory alive for family, friends, and their community at a time of year when they are missed the most. Local volunteers are feverishly working on this mission right now. Locally, volunteers for the Wreaths Across America program are very close to honoring every single veteran in the Kaufman County Veterans Memorial Park but they need just a little extra help to complete the mission. Please consider a small gift of remembrance by sponsoring a veteran’s wreath for $15 which will be placed in the park honoring of one of our local heroes. Each sponsorship goes toward a live, balsam wreath that will be placed at the base of each monument in the park and at the foot of every panel of the Vietnam Wall. We also need your help to volunteer as we endeavor to honor all veterans laid to rest at noon on Saturday, December 18, 2021, as part of National Wreaths across America Day. To sponsor a wreath for Friends of Kaufman County or learn how to volunteer, go to: www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/166996/Overview/?relatedId=166936.
