COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine — National nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) is in search of at least three sets of professional team drivers — retired, or nearing retirement — to volunteer to transport the organization’s Mobile Education Exhibit to various events across the country. The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring local communities and our military together with education, stories and interactive connections.

These volunteer positions would require one trip per month, a general knowledge and understanding of the WAA mission, and a willingness to work with the general public.

All fuel and travel accommodations will be covered, including a daily stipend for food. Interested parties would need to travel to Maine in early July for a hands-on training.

The 48-foot exhibit is equipped with a 24-person screening room that showcases the different aspects of the WAA mission through video.

To the front of the exhibit there are three interactive computers to showcase locations, trucking supporters, and general wreath sponsorship questions. Also, in the front is an education wall of information on the different areas of WAA and where the mission will be going in years to come.

The purpose of the Mobile Education Exhibit is to not only teach the next generation about service and sacrifice, but to share stories of patriotism and love of country to communities around the United States.
