The ringing of the bell is a tradition that has been done for over 200 years at firefighter funerals, it signals that he/she has come home for the final time. Casting the bell takes hundreds of pounds of bronze known as ingots, we invite the community to take part in the “ingot brigade” loading bronze pieces into the furnace. What is a Traveling Foundry?

Wreaths Across America Where Your Dollars Go

We take our mission seriously: when you donate to WAA, your money sponsors a wreath first. $.086 of every dollar donated goes toward wreath sponsorships, shipping costs not covered by our trucking partners, and fundraising group paybacks. WAA operated on the remaining margin, keeping overhead low and paying wages to just 8 full-time employees: our Executive Director and Chairman take zero salary and are 100% committed to the mission.
