Maplewood Cemetery

As an ongoing service project, JustOne Foundation is leading efforts to improve and maintain a one-acre section of Maplewood Cemetery where 1,097 African American military veterans are buried. In addition to encouraging the City of Greensboro to repair a flagpole, install benches and improve landscaping, the foundation organizes volunteers to clean headstones. Each year, on the Saturday before Memorial Day, representatives from the foundation participate in a Flags in Service ceremony at the cemetery to honor veterans. The foundation also donated a monument to the cemetery.
