Organic Remedies is a proud corporate sponsor for Wreaths Across America. Wreaths Across America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath- laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992. 

The organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at thousands of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.

Organic Remedies is supporting Indiantown Gap National Cemetery by encouraging individuals and organizations to sponsor a wreath(s) for the more than 45,000 service members laid to rest at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. These wreaths are completely funded by private, personal, or corporate donations. 

Each $17 wreath sponsored in 2023 will be placed by a volunteer on Saturday, December 16. Together, WAA and IGNC are committed to making sure that every veteran interred at IGNC, is Remembered, with or without a wreath. 

If you have a loved one buried at IGNC and wish for them to receive a wreath this year, you are strongly encouraged to sponsor Grave Specific wreaths. There are several ways to sponsor a wreath.
