Send troops a taste of home for the holidays! Pick up a stocking, decorate it & fill it with Christmas cheer

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Send our troops a little taste of home for the holidays! Max A. Sass and Sons Funeral and Cremation Service is proud to be one of the nearly 1,000 Veterans & Family Memorial Care providers across America that is participating in the 7th annual VFMC Christmas Stocking for Soldiers initiative.

From now through December 1st -- you're encouraged to 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.

Max A. Sass and Sons Funeral and Cremation Service will ship the stockings at their expense, to troops abroad in time for Christmas.

Stockings for Soldiers

“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” said Jim Sass, owner of Max Sass Funeral Home.

In addition Max A. Sass and Sons Funeral Home is also an official drop off center for "Cell Phones for Soldiers."

You can 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 calling cards for our heroes.

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 December 1st on Monday through Friday to pick up your free stocking or drop off an old cell phone.
