Help support Wreaths benefiting
the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies!

2019 Texas Roadhouse Fundraiser

$5,550.00 raised for WAA at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies

As a surprise to many, no governmental money is received for the wreaths placed at the national cemeteries. The wreaths and their transportation to the cemeteries are taken care of by individual sponsors, corporate donors, and volunteer truckers. As the number of graves increases yearly at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, the need continues to grow to raise funds for more wreaths.

We are hopeful to continue covering EVERY grave at the National Cemetery and ask for your assistance. Our Detachment participates in the "Three for Two" Program - 100% of the funds we raise for this program go straight to the purchase of wreaths for the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies - we do not receive payment for our fundraising efforts. Thus, for every two wreaths sponsored, a third will be provided at no additional cost. The cost to sponsor one wreath is $15.

Many thanks to all who donate
and/or assist in our fundraising efforts!

In 2020, Washington County Detachment 1138 completed its 6th year of fundraising for Wreaths Across America to benefit the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies and is excited to announce that ALL graves will be covered again for the sixth year in a row! 

 

The Detachment members raised a total of $11,580 last year.  Since we are a “3-for-2 Program” fundraiser and because we participated in the Wreaths Match earlier in the year, the funds we raised purchased 1,326 wreaths for veterans’ graves at the National Cemetery. 

 

Total funds raised from 2015 through 2020 to honor our Fallen have grown to over $62,000.  Detachment 1138 members should be extremely proud of their efforts!

 

A big thank you to all who have participated

in this heart-warming program for our Fallen!
