Last year the SGT. MAC FOUNDATION and the NATIONAL WREATH PROJECT placed 9,000 wreaths on graves at Quantico and Gettysburg National Cemeteries. This year we have committed to placing 10,000 Wreaths between the two Cemeteries. We are committed to placing 8,400 Wreaths at Quantico National Cemetery, where Sergeant Eric McColley is interred. We have also again committed to placing 1,620 wreaths on every headstone in the Gettysburg National Cemetery (also known as Soldiers National Cemetery). This will enable us to place a wreath on EVERY headstone in the original section of the Cemetery at Gettysburg. To accomplish this project, we need to raise approximately $ 75,000.00.
We would sincerely appreciate any assistance that you could provide in funding this endeavor. The wreaths and bows cost $ 7.50 each and are provided at cost by GIANT FOOD of Carlisle, PA. Transportation of the wreaths from Gettysburg to Quantico, VA is provided generously by ABF FREIGHT SYSTEMS. Everything else is provided by volunteers. 100% of every dollar donated will go to the purchase of wreaths.
You are invited to visit the Sgt. Mac Foundation web site at WWW.SGTMAC.ORG for details and photos of how THE NATIONAL WREATH PROJECT began as well as photos of last years program.
Please consider assisting us in this most worthy tribute to our Veterans. We are looking for contributions and sponsors by individuals, businesses, Veterans organizations and anyone else interested in helping us to honor our deceased and fallen Veterans.
You are also invited to join us in person for this program. This year we will meet at the Giant Food Store on Route 30 in Gettysburg, PA at 0800 on Friday December 4th 2015 to tie the bows on the Wreaths. We will then take a break and meet at 1:00 PM at the Gettysburg National Cemetery at the Taneytown Road entrance. After a short ceremony we will place the Wreaths. The following day, Saturday December 5th 2015 we will meet at 10:00AM at the Quantico National Cemetery and place the Wreaths there.
Please e-mail or call me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your participation. Thank-you in advance for your consideration and support.
