Nonprofit to place wreaths on 30,000 veterans’ graves at Nashville National Cemetery
The group is asking the public for help in achieving their mission.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - The Nashville chapter of Wreaths Across America (WAA) is asking the public to help them place a wreath on every veteran’s grave at Nashville National Cemetery in Madison.
The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember, honor and teach young people about those who have served the country. The nonprofit’s coordinator, Annette Robeck, said funds are falling short.
“We need wreaths,” Robeck said. “We have over 30,000 heroes laid to rest there, and as of today, we have only 3629 wreaths.”
The wreaths, which are $17 each, will be placed on graves across the country on Dec. 16 for Wreaths Across America Day.
Right now, there is a special “3 for 2″ promotion, where the donor can get three wreaths for the price of two when donations are made using the following codes through one of the following fundraising groups mentioned on the website:
- TN0024 for ALR Post
- 88TN0841 for BNA
- AATN0057 for Patriot Guard riders
- TN0957 for Col. Anthony Bledsoe
