Knights in Action – Wreaths Across America - Deadline Today!

Thursday, October 15, 2020

Since 2015, St. Bartholomew Council 11873 in East Brunswick, NJ has been involved with Wreaths Across America. This program buys and places wreaths on the graves of our veterans. Since starting, the council has raised over $22,000 and placed over 2,200 wreaths. In addition to regular council activities, funds have been raised at county fairs, yard sales and through donations from other local councils, assemblies and chapters as well as other local organizations.

This year the council has set their highest annual goal yet… $7,500! With the advent of COVID19 restrictions, the council has established a GoFundMe page to help solicit donations:

Regardless of how funds are raised, the brothers of St. Bartholomew Council 11873 will be out there laying wreaths to honor our veterans again this year!
