Parma, Ohio (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
Yurch Funeral Home will be participating in Operation Toy Soldier, a nationwide toy drive for the children of local, active duty military members.
"Because our area has a large number of military families, we are happy to participate in this annual holiday toy drive, " explained Bud Linder, Managing Funeral Director at Yurch Funeral Home. "We are collecting toys for families in the Cleveland area where their father or mother might actually be deployed overseas during Christmas. This is just one small way we can thank our military personnel for all they do for our country."
Please join us on Sunday, December 7th from 5pm-7pm at Yurch Funeral Home located at 5618 Broadview Road, Parma, Ohio 44134. Santa and his reindeer will be there along with some festive Nativity animals helping to collect new, unwrapped toys for Operation Toy Soldier. We will also have some active duty military members joining us for the evening. Come on by for some cookies and milk and Christmas cheer.
The toy drive will continue through December 20th. Drop off locations are: Yurch Funeral Home, Jardine Funeral Home, Embrace Salon and Spa in Brunswick, TrustedSec in Strongsville, and the Strongsville Recreation Center. For additional details on drop off locations, you can go to http://www.OperationToySoldier.com.
