PWC 4-H and WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA FUNDRAISER

 Received via email:

Prince William County 4-H Association (PWC4-H) has partnered with Wreaths Across America (WAA) to help honor our fallen heroes and protectors on December 15th, 2012 at Quantico National Cemetery. WAA’s goal is to fill all our national military cemeteries with wreaths on each grave to honor the fallen and their families. We hope you will want to help with this endeavor. We will help by selling wreath sponsorships for $15 a wreath and in return, we will receive $5 for every sponsorship we sell. This fundraising effort is to help our local PWC4-H continue to run wonderful educational programs and give out more camp scholarships!

On December 15th, you are invited to come to Quantico National Cemetery and help lay the wreaths. What a great way to serve your community by honoring those who gave everything to protect us. More information will come via email as we get closer to this date.

Please consider helping PWC4-H by sponsoring a wreath and by telling your friends and family about this wonderful opportunity. You can do this all online! There is no tracking necessary for online sponsorship orders. Below are the steps to be able to sponsor a wreath online. Attached is a letter that you can email to your friends and family asking them to sponsor a wreath as well. It is that easy.

Someone doesn’t want to do it online? That’s fine too. We have also attached a sponsorship form and tracking form for you to use. Please print out the forms, fill them out and collect the money at that time. Please fill in the receipt portion of the sponsorship form and give it to the sponsor for their tax deductible purposes. Make sure checks are made out to: Wreaths Across America. The 4-H office will mail in the sponsor sheets along with your tracking sheet. Please drop your sponsorship forms and tracking sheets off no later than November 16th, 2012 at the 4-H office; 8033 Ashton Ave. Suite 105 Manassas, VA 20109-8202 during regular business hours, 8:30am-5:00pm Monday – Friday.
