Stockings and cell phones for soldiers

Send our troops a little taste of home for the holidays. Harrison Family Mortuary is one of the nearly 1,000 Veterans & Family Memorial Care providers across America that is participating in this year’s annual VFMC Christmas Stocking for Soldiers initiative. From now through Dec. 1, stop in to the funeral home and pick up a free Christmas stocking to take home, decorate and stuff with Christmas cheer. Participants will receive a list of recommended items along with the free stocking. Harrison Family Mortuary will ship the stockings at their expense, to troops abroad in time for Christmas.

“Sending our heroes some good tidings and holiday 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,” say Nathan and Colleen Harrison, owners of Harrison Family Mortuary.

In addition Harrison Family Mortuary is also an official drop off center for cell phones for soldiers. Bring in your old cell phones to help our troops call home this holiday season. The old cell phones are recycled and turned into free phones for soldiers. To date VFMC providers nationwide have collected enough old cell phones to provide our troops overseas with nearly 4 million free calling minutes.

You may stop by the funeral home from now through Dec. 1 on Monday through Friday until 4 p.m. to pick-up a free stocking or drop off an old cell phone.

Harrison Family Mortuary is located at 311 W. Market St. in Aberdeen.
