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 & Family Memorial Care funeral home providers across America participating in the 12th annual VFMC Christmas Stocking for Soldiers & Veterans initiative.

From now through Dec. 1, please stop in at Cutler’s and pick up a free Christmas stocking to take home, decorate and stuff with Christmas cheer for a soldier. You will receive a list of recommended items along with the free stocking. Cutler’s will deliver the stockings at its expense, to the Chicago USO, which 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, 400 stockings were donated via the Cutler’s effort.

Pick up a stocking at the funeral home anytime Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Cutler Funeral Home and Cremation Center is located at 2900 Monroe St., La Porte. For more information, call 219-362-2828.

    This is wonderful. Do you have a charity that mails these out? Would like to get my son on a list. He’s always saying he doesn’t get anything from anyone. Poor kid but then again back in my day we didnt have the internet so aside from a phone center in port we had no contact with family and friends except by mail.
