Stuff a Stocking for a Local Hero
Send our troops and local veterans a little taste of home for the holidays.
Cutler Funeral Home and Cremation Center is proud to be one of more than 800 exclusive Veterans and Family Memorial Care funeral home providers across America participating in the 11th annual VFMC Christmas Stocking for Soldiers and Veterans Initiative.
From now through December 1st, please stop in to the funeral home and pick-up a free Christmas stocking to take home, decorate and stuff with Christmas cheer.
You will receive a list of recommended items along with the free stocking. Cutler Funeral Home and Cremation Center will deliver the stockings at their expense, to the Chicago USO, who will ship them to troops abroad in time for Christmas.
“Providing our heroes with some good tidings and Christmas cheer is a great way for us to show our support and appreciation for the sacrifices they make to keep our country safe and secure” said Dale Knouse, owner of Cutler Funeral Home and Cremation Center.
Last year, 325 stockings were donated. They were delivered to the Chicago USO. The USO then shipped the stockings to active military personal in Afghanistan for Christmas.
You may stop by the funeral home from now through December 1st on Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM to pick-up your Free Christmas Stocking. Cutler Funeral Home and Cremation Center is located at 2900 Monroe Street in La Porte.
