Every December, the organization Wreaths Across America places wreaths on graves at Arlington National Cemetery and other veterans cemeteries.

Thousands of volunteers come out to help and show respect to those who have died serving our country.

Bre Kingsbury revealed that they project to be 30,000 wreaths short of their goal of 230,000 for Arlington National Cemetery.

With National Wreaths Across America Day on December 12 fast approaching, Kingsbury said they are hoping for more donors step forward before the fundraising deadline of next Tuesday, December 1.

The wreaths only cost $15 each. Click the link for Wreaths Across America.
