ZAI and Employees Support Wreaths Across America
November 11, 2016—ZAI will once again be participating in Wreaths Across America in a variety of ways. For the second consecutive year, ZAI has donated 100 wreaths, which will be laid by volunteers at Arlington National Cemetery on December 17, 2016.
Individual employees are also participating by making donations through a fundraiser held by our building management, KBS and Transwestern. 100% of the donations collected by KBS and Transwestern will go to Wreaths Across America, and KBS and Transwestern will match donations up to 2,000 wreaths.
Finally, many ZAI employees will be at Arlington National Cemetery on December 17, 2016 helping to lay wreaths on grave sites.
About Wreaths Across America
Wreaths Across America has a mission—Remember, Honor, Teach—which is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies on a specified Saturday in December at Arlington National Cemetery, as well more than 1,100 additional veterans cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states, at sea, and abroad. The live balsam wreaths laid in Arlington are made in Maine and trucked down to Virginia, where tens of thousands of volunteers lay them on grave sites throughout the cemetery and are encouraged to say that veteran’s name aloud as an act of respect, gratitude, and remembrance.
