'Wreaths Across America' Projects 30K Shortfall for Arlington National Cemetery
Every December, the organization Wreaths Across America places wreaths on graves at Arlington National Cemetery and other veterans cemeteries.
Thousands of volunteers come out to help and show respect to those who have died serving our country.
Jenna Lee was joined on "Happening Now" by Wreaths Across America team captain Bre Kingsbury.
Kingsbury revealed that they project to be 30,000 wreaths short of their goal of 230,000 for Arlington National Cemetery.
With National Wreaths Across America Day on December 12 fast approaching, Kingsbury said they are hoping for more donors step forward before the fundraising deadline of next Tuesday, December 1.
Kingsbury explained that the wreaths are only $15 each and you can donate at the Wreaths Across America website.
"It's a great way to honor our fallen friends and to pay tribute to them and to make sure that the families of the fallen know that they're not forgotten, especially at the holidays, but all throughout the year," Kingsbury said.
