Help place a flag on every Fort Snelling headstone for the first time in 30 years

KARE 11 and Flags for Fort Snelling partner to honor vets this Memorial Day

Help place a flag on every headstone at Fort Snelling National Cemetery for the first time in 30 years.

As Minnesota’s front door for generosity, we are always excited to see all of the support on GiveMN.org from Minnesotans to power the good being done by nonprofits and schools in every corner of our state.

As we look forward to Memorial Day next weekend, we are especially thrilled to highlight a major project and fundraiser taking place in the Twin Cities. Flags for Fort Snelling, KARE 11, Mall of America, and RBCU have teamed up to ensure a flag will be placed on every grave at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, a feat which hasn’t been accomplished in more than 30 years.

Help purchase flags for Memorial Day 2018

Below, learn more from KARE 11 on how you can get involved by helping to purchase flags or volunteering to help place the flags next weekend.

Support our local veterans by helping purchase flags during the KARE 11 Flags for Fort Snelling Giving Day

Today, KARE 11 will host a special Flags for Fort Snelling Giving Day. It will be a day spent sharing stories of local veterans and our local heroes.  Your support will ensure every Veteran is honored, both this year and for years to come.
Here’s how you can help:

Help us purchase flags for each headstone for our partner nonprofit Flags for Fort Snelling. Your donation, large or small, will ensure every hero that has been laid to rest at Fort Snelling National Cemetery will be remembered this Memorial Day and lay the groundwork to make this a yearly tradition.

Donate to help purchase flags for every Fort Snelling headstone

Volunteer to help place flags over Memorial Day weekend and provide photos to requesting families who are unable to visit in person for Memorial Day. Volunteer registration is available on the Flags for Fort Snelling website.

Volunteer to help place flags over Memorial Day weekend

We only have 11 more days until Memorial Day weekend and we need your support to make this Memorial Day, and those to come, special for every Veteran.
