ANDERSONVILLE, GA (October 7, 2022) – Remember, honor, and teach. Those are three core values that the Bennett Family of Companies has strived for when carrying out the coordination of Wreaths Across America (WAA) for the past five years. Through local fundraising efforts, Bennett has ensured wreath-laying ceremonies are performed each December to honor fallen soldiers. More than 2,158 ceremonies have taken place across all 50 states, at sea and abroad. Bennett has partnered with the Taylor Family Foundation to ensure wreaths are gathered and laid at Andersonville National Cemetery in their home state of Georgia to pay respect to those who lost their lives in the line of duty, paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
Going into year six of WAA, Bennett will stick true to one of their core values of patriotism by carrying on this tradition and adding onto the 65,000 wreaths in total that have been hauled by Bennett since 2017. What will begin with Bennett drivers making the trip to Columbia Falls, Maine to pick up wreaths from the Worcester Wreath Company, the founders of Wreaths Across America Organization, will turn into a celebration at Bennett’s home office headquarters in McDonough, Georgia.
Richard Childress Racing and Austin Hill will help honor this tradition on Hill’s No. 21 Bennett Transportation and Logistics Chevrolet at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, October 8. This will be the first time the No. 21 Chevrolet will be wrapped to promote Wreaths Across America.
Hill said, “I’m really excited to have Wreaths Across America represented on my Bennett Transportation & Logistics Chevrolet this weekend at the ROVAL. Bennett’s passion for our country and the men and women who put it all on the line is something that I also feel strongly about. Any opportunity to support Wreaths Across America is special and I’m thankful that I get to drive the car with the wreath on it this weekend.”
Tune in and watch Hill pilot the special No. 21 Bennett Transportation and Logistics Chevrolet on Saturday, October 8, on NBC.
