Nonprofit begins its annual “Giving in July” campaign by recognizing local volunteers

Throughout the month of July, national nonprofit Wreaths Across America will be celebrating it’s annual Giving in July campaign, a press release detialed.

It is a month dedicated to recognizing the volunteer sponsorship groups and individuals who “give back” to their communities while helping to share the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach, all year long.

Through this national program, WAA has given more than $17 million in local contributions over the last 14 years and has helped support local charitable efforts that include helping living veterans, combating homelessness, and feeding those in need.

In Texas last year, the following local Sponsorship Groups ranked at the top in the state for their efforts to raise funds for local philanthropic efforts while raising wreath sponsorships for local service members laid to rest in their communities.

>> North Texas Wreaths of Honor in Dallas.

>> El Paso Composite Squadron-CAP TX-215 in Fort Bliss.

>> Veterans Freedom Foundation in San Antonio.

>> Operation Cover Texas in Dallas.

>> American Heritage Girls TX-5510 in Dallas.

>> American Heritage Girls TX6122 in Kennedale.

>> American Legion Family 113 in Lufkin.

>> Military Veterans For Christ, Inc in San Antonio.

“I have long said it would be disingenuous for us as an organization whose mission is to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve and their families, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom, if we do not support other like-minded programs doing just that in their communities,” WAA Executive Director Karen Worcester stated in the press release. “Our Group Sponsorship Program is a year-round effort, but through Giving in July we hope to remind people that veterans and our current military service protect us 365 days a year and it is never too early to make a difference in your own community.”

Wreaths Across America is the non-profit organization best known for placing wreaths on veterans’ headstones at Arlington National Cemetery. However, in 2022, the organization placed more than 2.4 million sponsored veterans’ wreaths at 3,100 participating locations nationwide. Throughout the calendar year, you can tune in to Wreaths Across America Radio, 24/7, to learn more about the mission and those who support it across the country, as well as the hundreds of local charitable efforts nationwide that are funded through wreath sponsorships.
