Organizers of Wreaths Across America are reminding individuals that Monday is the deadline to donate.
These wreaths will be used at the Grafton National Cemetery on December 15th during a special ceremony to honor veterans.
5 thousand wreathes are needed to cover the whole cemetery, and currently only 2,000 have been purchased through donations.
$15.00 purchases one wreath.
“It means a lot for us to get this cemetery covered. There’s a lot of heroes that are buried up there. Army, navy, air force, marines, coast guard. A lot of brothers and sisters are buried up there and it would mean a lot for us to get it covered today, or this weekend,” said Cliff Van Gilder, Coordinater.
To make a donation, you can visit wreathsacrossamerica.org and donate to the local fundraising group WVNCGR, which stands for the West Virginia National Cemetery of Grafton.
