County continuing 'Wreaths Across America' effort; deadline extended

The Wreaths Across America donation has been extended from today to Wednesday, Dec. 3, according to Michael "Big Sexy" Grider, county communications director or manager or whatever his title is now.

Members of the community wishing to contribute to the WAA effort in Knox County can do so by visiting RIGHT SMACK HERE.
So far, more than $42,000 have been raised, which amounts to more than 4,000 sponsored wreaths.

Thanks to a generous donation by Perceptics, all remaining headstones at the East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery on Governor John Sevier Highway will receive a wreath, Grider noted.  Also, Pilot Flying J once again made a substantial contribution to this year’s Wreaths Across America effort.

The Porch has blogged about this cause in the past. RIGHT SMACK HERE for more info.
