BLOG ARCHIVE | Wreaths Across America

Written by Karina Kedaitis

Worldwide Material Handling is honored to participate in the Wreaths Across America organization again this December.  This annual ceremony honors fallen American soldiers by placing hand-crafted wreaths at the headstones of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

The holidays often prove to be a difficult time for the families of these soldiers but the power of people coming together to honor their memory is undeniably uplifting. Volunteers of the ceremony will place the wreath at each soldier’s marker while stating the soldier’s name to symbolize that they, both individually and as a team, have not been forgotten. 

This compelling ceremony takes place every year at more than 1,200 locations across America. This year, Worldwide is thankful for the opportunity to donate 100 wreaths in memory of these fallen heroes.


This year’s ceremony will take place on December 14th from 9 am to 1 pm. You can find all ceremony locations on the website below.
