Of our two, yes two, opportunities to fundraise this year to help defer costs will be a partnership with Wreaths Across America (WAA).
The WAA mission is “Remember, Honor, Teach.” Remember our fallen U.S. Veterans. Honor those who serve. Teach the next generation the value of freedom.
To give you a little background on the organization, please take a moment to watch this short video.
To learn about the impact made nationwide last year, please take a peek at the WAA Fact Sheet.
As a Troop, are sponsoring the Roseville District Cemetary (RCD) at 421 Berry Street (WAA Location ID CARVCD)
The gist of our sponsorship is gaining support from our community for placing wreaths on each and every Veteran gravesite. As of today, there are 2,460 Veteran gravesites at RCD, the goal is to have 2,500 sponsored wreaths, and there are only 717 sponsored wreaths so far.
For each sponsored wreath (at $17.00 per wreath) that a boy secures, $5.00 will be given to the Troop.
The deadline for sponsoring wreaths is Tuesday, November 28th at midnight in order to have all the wreaths available for the wreath-laying ceremony on Saturday, December 16 at noon. The wreath-laying ceremony will be a Troop event on our calendar.
Our Troop’s sponsorship page is: Trail Life USA Troop CA-0019 WAA .
Our troop’s group ID is CA0823P
Sharing this page with potential sponsors is the quickest and easiest way to get started.
Of course, wreaths may also be sponsored by check or phone call directly to WAA. Again, key is for all sponsors to have Location ID and Group ID – CARVCD and CA0823P.
