Compatriots, seeking a way to give back?
The holiday season is sneaking up on us! Soon the chill in the air will give way to family gatherings, the holy season and the season of giving and receiving. How would you like to remember the season? Is giving a way to add satisfaction to the holiday season?
You can by sponsoring wreaths which will be placed on graves of our fallen heroes.
You can contribute:
1. your time to assist in picking up the wreaths and/or placing them graveside,
2. donate/sponsor the purchase of some of the wreaths, or
3. all of the above
This is a perfect opportunity to contribute in a way that makes sense for you.
The big day is On December 17, 2022 at 12:00 pm, Cincinnati Chapter Sons of the American Revolution will be helping Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati and Greenwood Cemetery in Hamilton to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes.
What is the plan? We are also involved in receiving wreaths sponsored for Spring Grove, warehousing them for about a week, delivering them to the cemetery and then disposing of them in mid-January.
Fundraiser for the Cincinnati Chapter – this is also a fundraising opportunity for the chapter. For each wreath sponsored for $15 at either Spring Grove or Greenwood the chapter will receive a $5 rebate. $5 dollars of each wreath sponsorship gets back to our chapter. The Chapter voted to sponsor 15 wreaths at each cemetery at the October BoM to initiate the campaign.
Sponsor Wreaths – how to: should you desire to sponsor wreath(s), go to Wreaths Across America. From there you will see a drop down box to select which cemetery(s) you wish to sponsor wreaths. Once you have made your selections, click on “Review My Sponsorships” to take you to a checkout page. If you would prefer to sponsor by check, use either of the forms attached to accomplish this.
To make sure the Cincinnati Chapter gets a $5 credit, on the check’s memo line write “OH0230P” so that the Chapter is credited with the sponsorship. You may sponsor at both cemeteries on one check.
Simply include both Sponsorship forms with your submittal.
Deadline for 2022 – website sponsorships and mail-in checks must be received by December 8th to ensure wreaths are ordered and credited to the chapter. Late entries will be applied toward 2023.
Thanks for your support!
