Wreaths Across America matching program to close Jan. 17, donate today


By Linda Hobbs | Wreaths Across America

The Wreaths Across America wreath matching program closes Tuesday, Jan. 17.

There are only a few more days to get your matching wreath sponsorship processed benefiting the veterans at Hill Top Cemetery and more than 3,700 other participating cemeteries. 

The 2023 theme has been announced: “Serve and Succeed.” 

The easiest way to sponsor for the matching campaign is online through either the Sarah Platt Decker Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution or the Vets 4 Vets of Archuleta County websites at: www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org/CO0186P or www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org/CO0258P, respectively. The cost of sponsorship per wreath is still just $15 and each wreath sponsored through Jan. 17 will be matched one for one for a greater impact for each sponsorship. Wreaths Across America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Alternatively, cash sponsorships may be made at the Vets 4 Vets meeting on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. at the Tennyson Event Center at 197 Navajo Trail Drive or by contacting Linda Hobbs through the information below. 

These past two years, Hill Top has been fortunate to receive 100 percent coverage of our 386 known veterans interred there. We need your continued help to make it three years straight. Additional wreaths sponsored will help our neighbors in La Plata County and at the Homelake Veterans Home in Monte Vista to reach their goals. We are also able to continue grave-specific requests of veterans interred in participating cemeteries elsewhere; just ask.

If you have questions about the program, please contact Hobbs at (713) 304-2028 or via email at lindahobbs713@gmail.com, or Patricia Joy at (970) 759-0622 or spdregent@gmail.com.

Year-round sponsorship is always welcome.
