Wreaths Across America partners with Jersey Mike’s Subs

12 Oct

A few months ago I reported that Wreaths Across America is coming to Webster. Today I bring you some exciting news about how a local business is supporting the cause.

Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization which began 31 years ago, its mission to place a wreath on the grave of every veteran in the country. Last year, 2.4 million wreaths were been placed in more than 3,100 cemeteries in the U.S. and abroad. This year, Webster Union Cemetery will join that list.

Webster Union is the resting place for about 650 veterans, so decorating every one of the their graves will require about 650 wreaths. Sponsoring a wreath only costs $15, and $5 from each sponsorship will go directly to the Blue Star Mothers, who will use the funds to prepare and ship care packages to deployed servicemen and women.

If you’d like to sponsor a wreath, click here to do so online, or email WebsterWreaths@icloud.com to request a form. Deadline is Sunday, November 20.

In the meantime, here’s another easy way for you to help the cause, courtesy Jersey Mike’s Subs (from their press release):

Wreaths Across America is thrilled to announce a partnership with Jersey Mike’s Subs, to help support fallen Webster veterans this holiday season. From 10/17-11/13, participating Jersey Mike’s locations will be accepting donations to sponsor wreaths for fallen veterans in the area of Webster. 

Wreaths Across America honors veterans who served during the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts. On December 17, which is National Wreath Day, there will be a wreath laying ceremony. This day helps us Remember, Honor and Teach, which is the mission of Wreaths Across America. 

In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Please visit the Wreaths Across America website to learn more about how to help support them this holiday season. 

By stopping by at any participating Jersey Mike’s Subs location, you can make your donation right at the register. As a little thank you for your support, Jersey Mike’s will be providing you a bounce-back coupon in return. 

Stop by at either of these locations to pledge your support to fallen heroes: 405 Commerce Drive, Victor (585-869-9338) and 976 Ridge Rd., Webster (585-545-7130).

Here’s what your donation will get you:

  • $1 donation = $1 off your next sub
  • $3 donation = free chip and drink with a purchase of a sub
  • $5 donation = buy one regular sub get one for free 

The cards will be available Oct. 17 through Nov. 13, are valid through Nov. 30, and can only be used one time. They can be purchased and used at both Jersey Mike’s locations in Victor and Webster.
