Wreaths Across America national tour makes stops in Houston area

Wreaths Across America, the non-profit known for placing wreaths on the headstones of veterans' graves, is bringing its mobile education exhibit to the Houston area.

"The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring community together and teach patriotism while remembering the service and sacrifice of our nation's heroes," said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. "However, over the last year, in light of the current health crisis, we feel this exhibit has taken on even more meaning by providing the opportunity for people to safely participate in something that is both educational and inspiring, while supporting and giving back to the communities it visits."

The exhibit will be at several locations in southeast Texas over the next few days.

In Houston, you can see it at Village Plaza at Bunker Hill at 9710 Katy Freeway on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
