The NFRW Armed Services Committee has chosen Wreaths Across America as our fall project. Each wreath purchased honors all servicemen and women for their selfless sacrifice. We encourage you to participate in the laying of the wreaths to honor our Veterans during this holiday season by purchasing a wreath. This December 17, 2016, is the 25th anniversary of the placing of the wreaths.

Last year because of donations from people like you, over 900,000 wreaths were donated and placed at nearly 1,100 participating locations around the world. However, there were not enough wreaths to place on all Veteran’s graves. We must not forget that the freedoms we have are because of our Veterans. 

There is no better time to express our appreciation and assist in the placing of even more wreaths during this holiday season. Your gift is tax deductible. Thank you for supporting this project and for your donation to this worthy cause.

The deadline for purchasing a wreath online is Saturday, December 3. If you prefer to send a check to sponsor a wreath, the deadline is Monday, November 28. 

To purchase a wreath:

1.       Visit and click on the big red “DONATE” button.

2.       Select the “Sponsor through a local fundraising group” and enter the group ID {IA0014} in the “search by” box above the map of the states.

3.       Click on the group name from the dropdown box (National Federation of Republican Women, Armed Services Committee) and click the donate button in the smaller box that appears. 

4.       Follow the steps for the sponsorship process from there. Please note that you can enter any dollar amount by clicking on the small black arrow that appears beside the automated suggested amount shown; if you click on the words “Choose amount to sponsor” you can remove those words and enter the amount you wish to sponsor (example: $5.00 or $32.00 or $105.00) OR you can select one of the preset amounts from the dropdown field.
