Funeral directors support military families
Region - posted Dec, 14 2012
Members of the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association (CFDA) from all over the state carried in toys, gift cards and checks to their 124th Annual CFDA Convention at the Crowne Plaza Cromwell – all to benefit Connecticut’s Operation E.L.F. This is the eighth year that the statewide association has conducted an organization-wide effort for Embracing Lonely Families (E.L.F.), which helps to support the families of Connecticut National Guard troops already deployed or preparing to deploy overseas, and who also suffer financial hardship as a result of their call to active duty. Within hours, members of the Wethersfield-based association collected more than $2,000 in cash and toys for the cause.
