Instead of giving out sweatshirts/t-shirts, we have set up a “3-for-2 program”. The cost to sponsor an individual wreath is $15.00. If someone chooses to sponsor two wreaths for $30, an additional third wreath will be placed on the headstone or marker of a local deceased veteran. Similarly, if someone sponsors four wreaths for $60, two additional wreaths will be placed at no added charge. Wreaths can be sponsored in honor of a living veteran or in memory of those who have passed.
Please consider supporting these efforts by spreading the word however possible and making a sponsorship donation in store or online. All efforts made, big or small, are greatly appreciated! To sponsor a wreath, please visit any of our 21 locations listed below, or you can make an online donation at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org\ME0059, by selecting the Hammond Lumber Company link. For more information please call Angela at (207) 495-1213.
In-store donations will be accepted through December 6, 2019.
Online donations will be accepted through December 11, 2019.
