About Wreaths for Warriors Walk
Our goal at "Wreaths for Warriors Walk" is to place a live wreath on every tree to honor the sacrifice of the soldiers and their families. We hold a ceremony each year which is open to the public. The ceremony is at noon on a Saturday in December. You can find more about us on Facebook. Just click the icon below.
Next ceremony is noon, December 17, 2016.
Our goal at Wreaths for Warriors Walk is to place a Christmas wreath at the tree of each and every fallen soldier at the Fort Stewart Warriors Walk at a solemn event. With generous donations, selfless volunteers, and in coordination with Wreaths Across America (WAA), our vision became a reality in December 2007. Based on the overwhelming support and attendance at that event, we decided to make it an annual event. In order to insure contributors that their donations were used as intended, we incorporated in 2008.
We need your support and sponsorship to help make this yearly event successful. To find out how to sponsor a wreath or make a donation, please visit our Sponsorship page.
