For ev­ery two wreaths spon­sored, a third will be placed at the Chel­tenham Vet­er­ans Ceme­tery.

The unit is seek­ing $15 do­na­tions for each wreath (one free for ev­ery two $15 do­na­tions). Checks can be made payable to Wreaths Across Amer­ica, and can be mailed to: Amer­i­can Le­gion Post 82, P.O. Box 1035, La Plata, MD 20646, Attn: Linda Rollins. Do­na­tions may also be made at the le­gion booth at the Charles County Fair on Sept. 16.

The wreath-lay­ing ser­vice at Chel­tenham Vet­er­ans Ceme­tery will be noon Saturday, Dec. 16. All are in­vited to at­tend and par­tic­i­pate.

This ef­fort is only pos­si­ble be­cause of in­di­vid­ual and corporate do­na­tions, the do­na­tions of truck­ing and ship­ping com­pa­nies and thou­sands of volunteers offering help­ing hands. Wreaths Across Amer­ica is a 501(c)3 or­ga­ni­za­tion, mean­ing do­na­tions are tax de­ductible and qual­ify for match­ing gifts from many com­pa­nies. For more in­for­ma­tion about the or­ga­ni­za­tion, go to www.wreath­sacrossamer­ica.org.
