Funeral home accepting donations for Operation Toy Soldier

ROCKWELL — This holiday season, Powles Funeral Home and Carolina Cremation will be participating in Operation Toy Soldier, a toy drive for the children of local active and non-active military members.

“Because our area has such a large number of military families, we are happy to participate in this holiday toy drive,” said Matt Staton, Funeral Director at Powles Funeral Home and Carolina Cremations. “We are collecting toys for families where the father or mother might actually be deployed overseas during Christmas or for any military family in North Carolina. This is just one small way we can thank our military personnel for all they do for our country.”

New, unwrapped toys can be donated at Powles Funeral Home, 913 W. Main St. Rockwell, N.C. 28138 or at one of two Carolina Cremation locations: 650 Industrial Ave., Salisbury, N.C. 28144 or 8517 Davis Lake Pkwy. Suite D-3 ,Charlotte, N.C. 28269 between Dec. 1 and 21, so they can be handed out right before Christmas.
