Wreaths Across America sponsorship.

American Legion Post 256 is a participating member in the Wreaths Across America Sponsorship Share Program. 

As the WAA’s yearlong mission continues to grow, so do operational costs associated with growing new and existing programs.  As a result, beginning on Feb. 1, 2023, the cost to sponsor a veteran’s wreath for placement on National Wreaths Across America Day will increase to $17 to help offset the increased cost for WAA programs and administration. 

For every $17 wreath sponsorship sold, our post will STILL receive $5 income.  THAT"S A GREAT DEAL!!!
