Pelion, S.C.-based leafy green marketer WP Rawl has again helped to honor military heroes by participating in the Wreaths Across Americas’ Honor Fleet.
The National Wreaths Across America Day takes place in over 1,600 locations in all 50 U.S. states, according to a news release.
This year, for the fourth time, WP Rawl was one of hundreds of volunteer truck companies participating in the event.
Making the 1,291-mile trip from Maine with thousands of wreaths, WP Rawl’s specially designed refrigerated truck brought them to the Beaufort National Cemetery in South Carolina, according to the release.
At the cemetery, WP Rawl was one of four tractor trailers included in the parade on Dec. 14, according to the release.
“We are happy to continue the tradition of supporting Wreaths Across America,” Ashley Rawl, vice president of sales, marketing and product development for WP Rawl, said in the release. “Part of our company vision is supporting the communities in our local areas, and what better way to support our local community by showing our thanks for the many of men and woman who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we have the freedoms we have today.”
