Harrison Family Mortuary is proud to be one of the 800 hundred funeral home providers across America participating in the 12th annual
Christmas Stockings for Soldiers Drive.
Amber Carlson from Harrison Family Mortuary stopped by the Kix 95.3 Morning show today to talk about this wonderful program and how you can be a part of it. Check out the interview below and also for information on how you can participate!
From now thru December 1st please stop by 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. Once stuffed, sew up the top and return to Harrison Family Mortuary to be placed under our tree. Harrison Family Mortuary will ship the stockings to troops abroad.
“Providing our heroes with 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” –Colleen Harrison of Harrison Family Mortuary
