Casa Grande Places lst in the Donations of Wreaths

Casa Grande Valley Elks is Proud to be Named a Top Group in Arizona for Wreaths Across America



Casa Grande, AZ, April 10, 2024 – Each year, national nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) recognizes top sponsorship groups for excellence in serving their local community while helping to share the yearlong mission to Remember, Honor, Teach. Among the thousands of supportive groups honoring locally interred veterans through wreath sponsorships, WAA recently announced that special recognition has been given to Casa Grande Valley Elks #1957, as one of the outstanding groups in Arizona.

Since its founding in 2007, WAA has collaborated with hundreds of like-minded charities, community programs, and civic groups throughout the country to remember and honor our nation’s veterans and active-duty military throughout the year.

Through this national program, WAA has given back $25 million in local contributions over the last 16 years!

“I have long said it would be disingenuous for us as an organization whose mission is to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom if we do not support other like-minded programs doing just that in their communities,” said WAA Executive Director Karen Worcester. “The Sponsorship Group Program is a great way to support the programs doing good work in your area all year, while honoring as many veterans as possible!”

You can help support Casa Grande Valley Elks’ efforts by sponsoring a veteran’s wreath for placement on National Wreaths Across America Day 2024 – Saturday, December 14, 2024. Each $17 sponsorship supports WAA’s year-round mission, and the programs designed to share it in communities nationwide. In addition, a live balsam wreath will be placed on the headstone of an American hero. To sponsor a wreath, visit www.Wreaths Across America.org/AZ0207.
