Volunteers needed after ceremony to place wreaths on veterans' graves.

For more information on WAA please contact our local Wreaths Across America Leader Mel Harbaugh at (419) 346-9192 or email at WAATMAC@gmail.com.

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.

Verdin’s Bell Foundry on Wheels, this two-day event offers the community an up-close personal experience in the creation of the last call bell which will forever be located at Toledo Memorial Park’s 911 First Responders Last Call Memorial. 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.
