It may feel early to start thinking about the Christmas season but Wreaths Across America is beginning to ramp up plans for this holiday season. This year, they’re partnering with Truckstop, a platform that creates innovative technology meant to improve the freight industry.
Every year, Wreath Across America sets out with the mission to honor past U.S. military service members. The campaign distributes wreaths across the graves of fallen veterans at the famed Arlington National Cemetery, along with 3,400 other locations across the United States.
The remembrance wreaths must be transported to the cemeteries and graves they will adorn, and that is where Truckstop comes in. The company is the 2022 sponsor for the campaign and will provide assistance in transporting the wreaths. This year, they are anticipating the delivery of over 2 million wreaths dispersed nationwide.
The event at Arlington National Cemetery will take place on Dec. 17, making that the necessary delivery date for the wreaths to arrive. Like they do throughout the year, the trucking industry will once again step in and selflessly lend their professional services to a good cause.
Truckstop wants to support Wreaths Across America in their goal to “Remember, Honor, and Teach.” They’ll aid in the delivery of live, balsam wreaths to further the campaign’s mission of remembering veterans, honoring their service, and teaching future generations the importance of doing the same.
“We are very proud to be a part of the Wreaths Across America mission in helping transportation partners assist in delivering more than two million wreaths to remember our nation’s fallen heroes,” said Kendra Tucker, Truckstop CEO. “Supporting the freight transportation community in partnership with such a respected institution is at the core of who we are at Truckstop. We provide important tools to help our customers all across the U.S. move their businesses forward and to be able to help move Wreaths Across America’s mission to ‘Remember, Honor, Teach’ forward as well, is an honor.”
