OGDEN -- Myers Mortuary is participating in the annual "Christmas Stockings for Soldiers" initiative.
Now thru Nov. 26, people may visit a Myers Mortuary 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. Myers will then ship the stockings at their expense, to troops abroad in time for Christmas.
Myers Mortuaries are among nearly 800 family-owned funeral homes nationwide certified as exclusive Veterans and Family Memorial Care Providers. They are also official dropoff centers for "Cell Phones for Soldiers."
Collectively in the past 3 months alone, providers have collected over 4,000 old cell phones that have translated into 250,000 free calling time minutes for our brave men and women serving overseas. Drop off an old cell phone on your visit to the funeral home to pick up a Christmas stocking.
Anyone wishing to take part may stop by at any Myers Mortuary, in Ogden, Roy, Layton and Brigham City between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. through Nov. 26.
