CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS FOR SOLDIERS
Send our troops a little taste of home for the holidays.
Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service of Salem is proud to be one of more than 800 exclusive Veterans & Family Memorial Care funeral home providers across America participating in the 10th annual VFMC Christmas Stocking for Soldiers & Veterans initiative. From now thru 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. Golden’s will ship the stockings at their expense, to troops abroad in time for Christmas. “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” said Tom P. Golden of Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service.
Golden explained, “In past years we have sent Christmas cheer to soldiers in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, Qatar, Kuwait and Jordon. We couldn’t do this without the generous help of the Salem area community.”
You may stop by the funeral home from now thru December 1st any day Monday thru Sunday between the hours of 8 AM and 6 PM to pick-up your Free Christmas Stocking, drop off donated items to stuff stockings or to drop off an old cell phone. Virgil T. Golden is located at: 605 Commercial Street SE, Salem. To coordinate your group assisting with stockings, contact Agena at (503) 364-2257.
