On Saturday December 17th, Executive Director, Victoria Levinger of the Wall f Honor foundation placed wreaths to honor Veterans that are no longer with us. This was part of the Wreaths Across America program which placed wreaths at thousands of cemeteries throughout America.
The donation of wreaths from the Worcester Wreath Co. began as a personal tribute from the Worcester family to military veterans who gave their lives for this country. The family quietly made these wreath donations to Arlington National Cemetery for nearly 15 years before a photo set them on a path they hadn’t dreamed about.
The photo — of the company’s wreaths at Arlington covered in snow — went viral in 2006. Shortly thereafter, the Worcester Wreath Co. began receiving unsolicited money from people who were touched by the wreaths and what they represented, and who wanted to participate by sponsoring wreaths themselves.
