WP Rawl Partners With Wreathes Across America This Holiday Season
- by Jordan Okumura
PELION, SC – Continuing its annual partnership, WP Rawl joined with Wreaths Across America—a program honoring fallen US Veterans with holiday wreaths—in donating and delivering wreaths to the graves of vets in South Carolina.
WP Rawl and Wreaths Across America donated services to the Fort Jackson National Cemetery in Columbia, SC, where sponsored wreathes were laid on the graves of fallen vets during an annual wreath-laying ceremony.
“We are always glad to give back to our community in any way that we can,” said Ashley Rawl, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Product Development. “Being part of Wreaths Across America is near and dear to our hearts, as many of our Rawl family members and family of employees are veterans. We are honored to be able to support a great cause and give back to those brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can have the freedoms we enjoy today.”
In addition to sponsoring wreaths to be laid on the graves of vets, the company redecorated one of its dedicated 53-foot reefer trailers with the Wreaths Across America logo and a graphic of the national cemetery. The trailer journeyed from Maine, where it picked up a load of wreaths, to the Florence National Cemetery in South Carolina.
A number of WP Rawl employees also joined the ranks of volunteers across the country who participated in National Wreaths Across America Day on December 17, distributing wreaths in honor of our departed servicemen.
