Join The People as we partner with Wreaths across America’s annual program of over 2 million volunteers nationwide placing wreaths on veterans’ headstones. By donating $15 you will fund 1 wreath to be placed on the gravesite of a fallen veteran.
The People is working to remember and honor veterans laid to rest all over the country by raising funds to sponsor wreaths. The People will receive $5 of every $15 wreath sponsorship raised to support our nonprofit organization and its ongoing work of state and local Listen/Learn/Action tours, and good governance reform efforts around the country. We are working to empower citizens to make changes in their own communities.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.Thank you so much for supporting the The People (MI0207P) and Wreaths Across America!
