Help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring a wreath.  Northrop Grumman will donate up to $10,000 to Wreaths Across America in honor of your donations.


For wreaths to be laid this year, the final cut-off date is December 2nd. Donations made after the 2nd will apply towards next year, but still count towards our match and goal until the 13th.

You may donate to one of many locations:

1. Select "Sponsor Wreaths"

2. Select "Location to Support". There is a drop down menu on the right of "Arlington National Cemetery"

3. Scroll through the list to select your location of choice

4 . If a participating cemetery is not listed, which you would like to support scroll to the bottom of the drop down list and select "choose another cemetery to support". You will then enter that name and your donation will count on our page.  

Feel free to share this Northrop Grumman donation page with friends and family.

Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
  • Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath. Please only place one wreath at a time. And SAY THEIR NAME. 
  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
  • If handed a form the wreath has to be placed on that particular gravesite.
  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.
  • Clean up is always on MLK Day.  Starts around 9am, dress for weather and wear gloves. 

The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
