French Funeral Home, an exclusive, certified Veterans and Family Memorial Care Provider, will participate in its annual "Christmas Stockings for Soldiers" initiative.
Through the remainder of November, community residents may visit French Funeral Home and pick-up a Free Christmas Stocking to take home, decorate and stuff with Christmas cheer.
Stuffed stockings must be returned to the funeral home by Dec. 1.
French Funeral Home will then ship it, at its expense, to troops abroad in time for Christmas.
"This is a great way for us to show our support for the troops, while giving them a little taste of home for the holidays," French Funeral Home Owner Susan French said.
French Funeral Home is one of almost 800 family owned funeral homes nationwide certified as an exclusive Veterans and Family Memorial Care Provider.
VFMC Providers are also official drop off centers for "Cell Phones for Soldiers."
Collectively in the past three months alone, they have collected more than 4,000 old cell phones that have translated into a quarter million (250,000) free calling time minutes for military overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Residents may drop off an old cell phone on their visit to the funeral home to pick up a free Christmas stocking.
Anyone wishing to Stuff a Christmas stocking may stop by French Funeral Home, located at 421 E. National Ave, Brazil, between the hours of 8 a.m.- 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
