Chamber requests sponsors for ‘Wreaths Across America’

Courtesy of the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce:

We would appreciate your support in honoring our Veterans by sponsoring live wreaths to be placed on headstones in December for Wreaths Across America Day as we have done for the past 5 years. It is the Chamber’s goal to purchase a wreath for all SBC Veterans. We are partnering with the VFW to ensure we reach our goal of 500 live wreaths; one for each SBC Veteran. To reach our goal, we need our community’s support. Due to COVID-19 many community members have been financially impacted and have been unable to donate this year. We humbly ask if you would you be willing to donate towards purchasing wreaths to honor SBC Veterans.

Due to COVID-19, we will not be able to have a community gathering at Calvary Cemetery as we have done in past years. Our local VFW will be placing the wreaths on our behalf. We will be coordinating with a local videographer to document this occasion so that we may share this with our community that wishes to be able to participate in honoring our veterans, saying their name out loud and placing a live wreath on their headstone. 

We would be honored to have your support and would gladly accept a donation towards wreaths for our SBC Veterans. Please let us know if you would like to partner with us in this great mission to honor those who gave so much for our country.

Wreaths are $15.00 each

The last day to purchase wreaths is November 30, 2020
