Wreaths Across America Day

Wreaths Across America Logo

Each December, Wreaths Across America carries out wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 states, at sea and abroad. 

This year, Wreaths Across America Day will take place on Saturday, Dec. 14. GW Nursing is organizing a group to go to Union Cemetery Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia. Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are all welcome to volunteer. There are approximately 700 wreaths that will need to be placed spaced out over two time periods:

  • 9 a.m. - Unloading of wreaths
  • Noon - Laying of wreaths

We strongly encourage all volunteers to attend the ceremony beginning at 11:30 a.m.

Please let us know if you are planning to volunteer by responding at the link below. If you have any questions, contact Matt Hess at [email protected].

Sign Up to Volunteer by Dec. 12 at Noon
