TCA Members Encouraged to Contribute to Wreaths Across America Driver Care Package
In the next several weeks, volunteer truck drivers will begin to haul wreaths to more than 950 veterans cemeteries. Each one will be given a care package before his/her run begins. This year, it will include a sweatshirt, hat, and patch, each of which will say "2013 Wreaths Across America Official Escort."
If there is something that your company would like to include in the package, we welcome your participation. Please remember, however, that space is limited. The item really must be something small that the drivers can use while out on the road or that they might want to keep as a memento related to their mission.
If you have something that meets these criteria, we would need to receive 150 units by Monday, November 25. Please send them to:
Wreaths Across America
Also, if you would like to donate $15, we can put a wreath on the grill of one of the trucks in your name. A notecard will be inserted in the driver's care package letting him/her know that you were the donor. E-mail Debbie Sparks, TCA's vice president of development, to make arrangements.
And please don't forget to make a $15 donation at www.TruckloadofRespect.com to put a wreath on a gravestone at Arlington National Cemetery.
