Wreaths Across America recently announced a new sponsorship opportunity called Rolling Ambassadors for professional truck drivers, bikers, police officers, and first responders.
A nonprofit organization, Wreaths Across America was founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery that was started by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992. The organization’s mission of “Remember, Honor, Teach” is carried out through wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at thousands of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states.
For a sponsorship of $125, a Wreaths Across America’s Rolling Ambassador will sponsor two Remembrance Wreaths and receive a special package valued at more than $160. The package includes a Wreaths Across America sweatshirt, window cling, embroidered patch, baseball cap and pin. In addition, the sponsor’s name will be added to a social media graphic during the week of wreaths.
People can sign up for a Rolling Ambassador sponsorship here.
Each holiday season, an Honor Fleet made up of volunteer drivers and donated equipment carry loads of Remembrance Wreaths.
“Every year we have so many professional drivers, bikers, police officers and other first responders asking us how they can get involved, even if they can’t transport wreaths,” Wreaths Across America Executive Director Karen Worcester said in a news release. “This program is designed for these dedicated men and women. By becoming a Rolling Ambassador sponsor, Wreaths Across America is entrusting drivers to proudly wear the logo and share the importance of the mission to remember the fallen, honor those who serve, and teach our children about the true cost of freedom.”
